Horizontal segment

The Hsegment structure is useful for describing all pixels belonging to a (connected or non-connected) set, without taking the border into consideration. An horizontal segment is given by a left and a right point. If the shape of the set is more height than width, you should rather use vertical segments (not yet defined). The morpho set defined in Section 7.5 makes the use of the Hsegment structure, which defines an horizontal segment.
