I tried to make a program that returns the perimeter of a plane curve defined implicitly. The difficulty is that this type of curves can have more connected regions.
As an example we can take
f=@(x,y) sin(x).*sin(y)-0.5;
I observed that the points used by the fimplicit command are in such an order that makes the connected regions separately, and I detect the indices where we pass from one connected region to another. My idea was that if the segment connected two consecutive points from Points is greater than a small enough number (but not too small) tol than this is the step where a connected region is finished and we go to the next one. I'm not sure that this is indeed the way fimplicit command works. I see this picture that I make using the plot command:
plot(real(Points),imag(Points)) %see below what is the vector Points
Here is my code:
fp=fimplicit(f,[-8,8,-8,8],'meshdensity', 1000,'visible', 'off');
Points=fp.XData+1i.*fp.YData; %these are the x and y coordinates of the points used by fimplicit to represent the curve f(x,y)=0.
P=sum(hypot(real(d),imag(d)).*(hypot(real(d),imag(d))<tol)); %this is the perimeter
It returns very good values (3 or 4 decimals are exact). But it depends on how I choose the tolerance tol. If I take it too low the perimeter will be less than it is indeed. Moreover if I hace a part of a connected region on a corner then I want to take into account the part of the perimeter of the rectangle that bounds that region. With my program that is impossible.
Is there a way to write that program without the use of tol and to take into account the corners if needed?

I made a typo with Pointsnew;
If I delete NaN points with the command Points=Points(isfinite(Pointsnew)==1) and use plot afterwards I will get to the image that I posted above.
I want to calculate the perimeter indicated by black lines in the picture inserted by Matt J in his answer (so with the corners taken into account).

Perhaps as follows (see also this thread)
plotRange=[-1,+1, -1,+1]*8;
plotCorners=[-1 1;1 1;1 -1; -1 -1]*8;
f=@(x,y) (sin(x).*sin(y)-0.5);
XY=[fp.XData;fp.YData].'; close

Perimeter = 109.2290

Well, you don't seem to have included samples of the boundary rectangle in the list of points in any way.
