# Construction

blankPicture :: Num u => BoundingBox u -> Picture uSource

Create a blank `Picture`

sized to the supplied bounding box.
This is useful for spacing rows or columns of pictures.

frameWithin :: (Fractional u, Ord u) => Primitive u -> BoundingBox u -> Picture uSource

Frame a picture within the supplied bounding box

A text label uses the supplied bounding box as is - no clipping is performed if the bounding box is smaller than the boundary size of the text. This may cause strange overlap for subsequent composite pictures, and incorrect bounding box annotations in the prologue of the generated EPS file.

Paths and ellipses are bound within the union of the supplied
bounding box and the inherent bounding box or the path or
ellipse. Thus the bounding box will never reframed to a
smaller size than the *natural* bounding box.

frameMulti :: (Fractional u, Ord u) => [Primitive u] -> Picture uSource

Lift a list of primitives to a composite picture, all primitives will be located within the standard frame.

This function throws an error when supplied the empty list.

multi :: (Fractional u, Ord u) => [Picture u] -> Picture uSource

Place multiple pictures within the same affine frame.

This function throws an error when supplied the empty list.

path :: Point2 u -> [PathSegment u] -> Path uSource

Create a Path from a start point and a list of PathSegments.

lineTo :: Point2 u -> PathSegment uSource

Create a straight-line PathSegment.

vertexPath :: [Point2 u] -> Path uSource

Convert the list of vertices to a path of straight line segments.

curvedPath :: [Point2 u] -> Path uSource

Convert a list of vertices to a path of curve segments.
The first point in the list makes the start point, each curve
segment thereafter takes 3 points. *Spare* points at the end
are discarded.

# Constructing primitives

Create a open, stroked path (`ostroke`

) or a closed, stroked
path (`cstroke`

).

`ostroke`

and `cstroke`

are overloaded to make attributing
the path more convenient.

ostroke :: (Num u, Ord u) => t -> Path u -> Primitive uSource

cstroke :: (Num u, Ord u) => t -> Path u -> Primitive uSource

Stroke (HSB3 Double, [StrokeAttr]) | |

Stroke (HSB3 Double, StrokeAttr) | |

Stroke (RGB3 Double, [StrokeAttr]) | |

Stroke (RGB3 Double, StrokeAttr) |

Create a filled path (`fill`

). Fills only have one
property - colour. But there are various representations of
colour.

` fill () `

will fill with the default colour - black.

clip :: (Num u, Ord u) => Path u -> Picture u -> Picture uSource

Clip a picture with respect to the supplied path.

Create a text label. The string should not contain newline
or tab characters. Use `multilabel`

to create text with
multiple lines.

`textlabel`

is overloaded to make attributing the label more
convenient.

Unless a `FontAttr`

is specified, the label will use 12pt
Courier.

ztextlabel :: Point2 u -> String -> Primitive uSource

Create a label where the font is `Courier`

, text size is 10
and colour is black.

multilabel :: (Fractional u, Ord u, TextLabel t) => t -> u -> VAlign -> Point2 u -> [String] -> Picture uSource

Create multiple lines of text.

The dimension argument is the linespacing, measured as the distance between the upper lines descender and the lower lines ascender.

An error is throw if the list of strings is empty

Create an ellipse, the ellipse will be filled unless the
supplied attributes *imply* a stoked ellipse, e.g.:

ellipse (LineWidth 4) zeroPt 40 40

Note - within Wumpus, ellipses are considered an unfortunate
but useful *optimization*. Drawing good cicles with Beziers
needs at least eight curves, but drawing them with
PostScript's `arc`

command is a single operation. For
drawings with many dots (e.g. scatter plots) it seems sensible
to employ this optimaztion.

A deficiency of Wumpus's ellipse is that (non-uniformly) scaling a stroked ellipse also (non-uniformly) scales the pen it is drawn with. Where the ellipse is wider, the pen stroke will be wider too.
