Finding minimal width of polygon

Trying to find the minimal width of a polygon as described as any point on any line, connected to any other point on any other line. This must work for Convex, Concave, and polygons with holes. The shapes are presented as bezier curves.

Re: Finding minimal width of polygon

This is easy to do visually, but I can't imagine any kind of method that would be effeicient, as lines and curves contain an infinite number of points.
