Returns the cone which is the hull of lattice vectors in L. The output has C.isPolytope==true.
If applied to the string fn the result of a previous computation stored via the option file is read from the file fn.
The hull of L has to be strictly convex.

The cone is represented as a complex on its rays, hence if dim(Face) is applied to a Face it will return the dimension of the corresponding cone minus one.
This uses the package OldPolyhedra.m2 to compute the facets. Too slow compared to Maple/convex.
If the package ConvexInterface is loaded, then this command calls Maple/Convex. See the corresponding option explained at SRdeformations.
The object hull is a method function with options.
