◆ G_shortest_way()

void G_shortest_way ( double *  east1,
double *  east2 

Shortest way between two eastings.

For lat-lon projection (PROJECTION_LL), east1, east2 are changed so that they are no more than 180 degrees apart. Their true locations are not changed. For all other projections, this function does nothing.
