I came across your userpage and noticed you had done a lot of work on Wikipedia, but as far as I could tell no one had given you a barnstar,, which seems like a crime to me --Mr.crabby (Talk) 02:07, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Example of an efn note[edit]

In object-oriented programming (OOP), a factory is an object for creating other objects – formally a factory is simply an object that returns an object from some method call, which is assumed to be "new".[a] More broadly, a subroutine that returns a "new" object may be referred to as a "factory", as in factory method or factory function. This is a basic concept in OOP, and forms the basis for a number of related software design patterns.

I'm staying in touch with the content, and probably will do some edits now and again. I'm not overly comforable with the current organization, but don't have any alternative ideas at this point. Maybe it's that I have too much experience already with VB6, and have forgotten what I needed when just starting out. Fow now, I'll be content to just edit typos and obvious errors, and if I have any reorganization ideas, I'll describe them here for others to implement. - Bevo 14:00, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Bresenham's line algorithm[edit]

An implementation of Bresenham's line algorithm in C follows. The plot() function is not shown and is assumed to render a single point of the line in the chosen color. This variation produces solid lines of a uniform color.

void drawline2d(int x0, int y0, int x1, int y1, int color)
       int i;
       int steep = 1;
       int sx, sy;  /* step positive or negative (1 or -1) */
       int dx, dy;  /* delta (difference in X and Y between points) */
       int e;
        * inline swap. On some architectures, the XOR trick may be faster
       int tmpswap;
#define SWAP(a,b) tmpswap = a; a = b; b = tmpswap;
        * optimize for vertical and horizontal lines here
       dx = abs(x1 - x0);
       sx = ((x1 - x0) > 0) ? 1 : -1;
       dy = abs(y1 - y0);
       sy = ((y1 - y0) > 0) ? 1 : -1;
       if (dy > dx) {
               steep = 0;
               SWAP(x0, y0);
               SWAP(dx, dy);
               SWAP(sx, sy);
       e = (dy << 1) - dx;
       for (i = 0; i < dx; i++) {
               if (steep) {
               } else {
               while (e >= 0) {
                       y0 += sy;
                       e -= (dx << 1);
               x0 += sx;
               e += (dy << 1);

A slightly more optimized version of the above (might be a bit harder to read, though):

void drawline2d(int x0, int y0, int x1, int y1, int color) {
   int i;
   int sx, sy;  /* step positive or negative (1 or -1) */
   int dx, dy;  /* delta (difference in X and Y between points) */
   int dx2, dy2;
   int e;
   int temp;
   dx = x1 - x0;
   sx = (dx > 0) ? 1 : -1;
   if (dx < 0)
       dx = -dx;
   dy = y1 - y0;
   sy = (dy > 0) ? 1 : -1;
   if (dy < 0)
       dy = -dy;
   dx2 = dx << 1; /* dx2 = 2 * dx */
   dy2 = dy << 1; /* dy2 = 2 * dy */
   if (dy <= dx) { /* steep */
       e = dy2 - dx;
       for (i = 0; i <= dx; ++i) {
           plot(x0, y0, color);
           while (e >= 0) {
               y0 += sy;
               e -= dx2;
           x0 += sx;
           e += dy2;
   } else {
       /* swap x0 <-> y0 */
       temp = x0;
       x0 = y0;
       y0 = temp;
       /* swap dx <-> dy */
       temp = dx;
       dx = dy;
       dy = temp;
       /* swap dx2 <-> dy2 */
       temp = dx2;
       dx2 = dy2;
       dy2 = temp;
       /* swap sx <-> sy */
       temp = sx;
       sx = sy;
       sy = temp;
       e = dy2 - dx;
       for (i = 0; i <= dx; ++i) {
           plot(y0, x0, color);
           while (e >= 0) {
               y0 += sy;
               e -= dx2;
           x0 += sx;
           e += dy2;

An implementation of the Bresenham's line algorithm in python follows. It is translated from Bresenham's line algorithm C code, with some minor changes, notably: the points converted to integers, an optimization for where p1 and p2 are identical, returning a list of points instead of calling a plot() function.

def bresenham(p1,p2):
       """Returns a list of all points in a line between p1 and p2."""
       if p1 == p2: return [p1]
       points = []
       steep = True
       x0,y0, x1,y1 = map(int,(p1[0], p1[1], p2[0], p2[1]))
       dx = abs(x1 - x0)
       if (x1 - x0) > 0: sx = 1
       else: sx = -1
       dy = abs(y1 - y0)
       if (y1 - y0) > 0: sy = 1
       else: sy = -1
       if dy > dx:
               steep = False
               y0, x0 = x0, y0
               dy, dx = dx, dy
               sy, sx = sx, sy
       e = (dy << 1) - dx;
       for i in range(dx):
               if steep: points.append((x0,y0))
               else:     points.append((y0,x0))
               while e >= 0:
                       y0 += sy
                       e -= (dx << 1)
               x0 += sx
               e += (dy << 1)
       return points

An example of Bresenham's line algorithm in Visual Basic follows. The "Swap" procedure is not shown.

Private Sub BresLine(InitialX As Long, InitialY As Long, FinalX As Long, FinalY As Long)
   ' Bresenham's line algorithm for Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
   ' Implementation by Robert Lee <> July, 2002 Public Domain
   Dim Steep As Boolean
   Dim DeltaX As Long, DeltaY As Long, Delta As Long
   Dim StepX As Long, StepY As Long
   Dim Coord As Long
   Steep = False
   DeltaX = Abs(FinalX - InitialX)
   If (FinalX - InitialX) > 0 Then
       StepX = 1
       StepX = -1
   End If
   DeltaY = Abs(FinalY - InitialY)
   If (FinalY - InitialY) > 0 Then
       StepY = 1
       StepY = -1
   End If
   If DeltaY > DeltaX Then
       Steep = True
       Swap InitialX, InitialY
       Swap DeltaX, DeltaY
       Swap StepX, StepY
   End If
   Delta = (DeltaY * 2) - DeltaX
   For Coord = 0 To DeltaX - 1
       If Steep Then
           Me.PSet (InitialY, InitialX)
           Me.PSet (InitialX, InitialY)
       End If
       While Delta >= 0
           InitialY = InitialY + StepY
           Delta = Delta - (DeltaX * 2)
       InitialX = InitialX + StepX
       Delta = Delta + (DeltaY * 2)
   Next Coord
   Me.PSet (FinalX, FinalY)
End Sub
