## reb Class REB_TrapShapeLinksCurve

```Object

```

`class TrapShape:REB_TrapShapeLinksCurve`

This shape uses the links curve function.

This variant of the function involves taking a square root so there are two solutions. A signed and absolute value version of the distance is also available. The transformed value is the complex return value of the function.
