fit_point - find the 4x4 transformation matrix to fit a point cloud to a reference point cloud.
fit_point [-?|-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] REFERENCE
fit_point finds the transformation matrix which best transform a point cloud to a reference point cloud using the Kabsch algorithm.
The matrix found can be used to transform a larger point cloud using orient(1) with option -m.
The two point clouds should have an equal number of points, in the same order and the points should corresepond to each other.
The point cloud to orient is read from the standard input, the reference point cloud is read from file REFERENCE and the result is returned to the standard output.
Returns the manual page.
Be verbose.
