In the script from comment #1, ks=k.

You can see the behavior of "simplify"= true in the script

chull1.mat attached,

Note that 'simplify'= true omits all the points that if we drop them, the convex hull will not change.
In the 2D case it's simple:
if a few points are on a straight segment, the inner points are
omitted, and the end points are left.

@Juan: Can you try the example in comment #1 and report back. I can't implement the feature until I know what it's supposed to do.

Could you run the sample script in Matlab and upload the results so we can see what the "simplify" option does?

Option 'simplify' is not accepted. Couldn't find the equivalent for qhull
