[postgis-users] ST_Buffer internals

Hi All,
I am wondering how ST_Buffer computes a buffer around say a LINESTRING? How
can I look at the internals of this?
Is it possible to achieve the same effect using GDAL's C++ API? I ask
because I have a very large LIDAR 3-D data set
which I cannot load into Postgis, but I would certainly want to understand
how postgis achieves some of it's
functionality, to get some ideas. Would love to hear some explanations or
ideas about how to do this!
