Slab decomposition data structure for 2D vertical ray queries
Given a collection of line segments, constructs a slab decomposition for the purpose of point location queries. This implementation uses a functional red-black tree to store the slabs, requires O(n log(n)) space and answers vertical ray queries in O(log(n)) time.

Returns A slab decomposition data structure
Casts a vertical ray from
point going upward along
[0,1]. Returns the index of the first segment hit.
pointis the base point of the ray
Returns The index of the first segment hit by point, otherwise -1 if no segment intersects the ray.
