NAME

tickit_rectset_add - add an area to a rectangle set

SYNOPSIS

#include <tickit.h> 
void tickit_rectset_add(TickitRectSet *trs, const TickitRect *rect);
 

Link with -ltickit.

DESCRIPTION

tickit_rectset_add() ensures that the regions stored by the rectangle set includes the area given by rect. Since the rectangle set stores a set of non-overlapping regions, it may have to split the newly-added area into smaller pieces, to ensure the regions do not overlap. Since it merges neigbours where possible it can also result in fewer regions being stored.

RETURN VALUE

tickit_rectset_add() returns no value.
