I'm here as a student for the Summer of Code 08 initiative, having quickly
the cairo/pixman src codes, I here list few selected ideas and my doubts,
Please correct me if I'm wrong:
a. [Hard] Add support for programmatic patterns, (ie. arbitrary
1. it is the logical extension to the patterns drawing capability,
but why the "coons patch mesh & tensor patch mesh" models only ?
2. Wouldn't "Type 1 Shading (Functional)" suffice ?
3. is cairo_pattern_create_linear(), functionality wise a derivative to
the above ?
4. is cairo_pattern_create_radial(), similar to "Type 2 Shading
5. Do I need to have a very good understanding of the Benzier Curves, so
as to undertake this assignment ?
(Reference from - PostScript Language Reference)
b. [Medium] Add HDR image surface type to cairo/pixman
Please point me to if any, HDR Image library that can be used (if that
needs to be ?).
