NAME

Algorithm::Line::Bresenham::C - it is a C version Algorithm::Line::Bresenham to speed up a bit.

SYNOPSIS

 use Algorithm::Line::Bresenham::C qw/line/;
 my @points = line(3,3 => 5,0);
    # returns the list: [3,3], [4,2], [4,1], [5,0]

DESCRIPTION

Bresenham is one of the canonical line drawing algorithms for pixellated grids. Given a start and an end-point, Bresenham calculates which points on the grid need to be filled to generate the line between them.

Googling for 'Bresenham', and 'line drawing algorithms' gives some good overview. The code here takes its starting point from Mark Feldman's Pascal code in his article Bresenham's Line and Circle Algorithms at http://www.gamedev.net/reference/articles/article767.asp.

FUNCTIONS

line

 line ($from_y, $from_x => $to_y, $to_x);

Generates a list of all the intermediate points. This is returned as a list of array references.

circle

    my @points = circle ($y, $x, $radius)

Returns the points to draw a circle with
