It contains replacements for all canvas drawing items except for the text item. The core part is the path item which is very flexible. For items that are similar to existing canvas items I have prepended the names with a "p". The items are: path prect circle ellipse pline polyline ppolygon pimage They are typically much more flexible than their canvas counterparts. Some features: antialiasing affine transforms opacity linear gradients radial gradients It is also possible to define styles to be used for sets of items. This is in line with modern design patterns that separate the apperance from the content. Home: http://tclbitprint.sourceforge.net/ This package is simplest described using screenshots: http://tclbitprint.sourceforge.net/tkpath/quartz/index.html http://tclbitprint.sourceforge.net/tkpath/gdiplus/index.html http://tclbitprint.sourceforge.net/tkpath/cairo/index.html There are five backends used for drawing. They are all platform specific except for the Tk drawing which uses only the API found in Tk. It is only to be used as a fallback when the cairo backend is missing. The backends: 1) CoreGraphics for MacOSX, built using ProjectBuilder 2) GDI for Win32, built by VC++7 (.NET) 3) GDI+ for WinXP, built by VC++7 (.NET), runs also on older system using the gdiplus.dll 4) cairo (http://cairographics.org), built using the automake system; the configure.in and Makefile.in files are a hack, so please help yourself (and me). It requires a cairo 1.0 installation since incompatible API changes appeared before 1.0 (libcairo.so.2 ?). 5) Tk drawing, fallback for cairo mainly, very basic BSD style license.
