README

ShivaVG
=============================

See AUTHORS for the list of contributors

ShivaVG is an open-source LGPL ANSI C implementation of the Khronos
Group OpenVG specification.

I.    BUILD
II.   TESTING
III.  IMPLEMENTATION STATUS
IV.   EXTENSIONS


I. BUILD
=============================

 * Prerequisites:

   OpenGL development libraries and headers should be installed.
   Othe than that, since it's ANSI C should compile with any modern
   C compiler. jpeglib needs to be installed for example programs
   that use images.

 * Compiling under UNIX systems:

   Read the INSTALL file for more detailed (though generic) directions.
   This library uses the standard ./configure ; make. The example
   programs are automatically compiled. However, compilation of each
   example program can be toggled by ./configure --with-example-xxx
   command where xxx denotes the name of the example. Run ./configure
   --help for a list of such options.

 * Compiling on Mac:

   No XCode project files provided yet. The easiest way is by just
   using gcc, in which case look under UNIX compiling section.

 * Compiling natively on Windows platform:

   Solution files are provided for Visual C++ version 7 and 8. For
   the example programs using images to compile, you will need the
   appropriate build of jpeglib to match your Visual C++ version.

 * Compiling in mingw / cygwin environment:

   Might work just as fine as any UNIX-flavored system, but hasn't
   been tested yet.


II. TESTING
=============================

There is no real testing suite yet. The example programs are there
just to play with what the implementation can currently do, but
can hardly provide any proper validation, since no reference images
are provided. Here is a description of each example program and
what features it highlights:

* test_vgu

  Constructs some path primitives using the VGU API.

* test_tiger

  The most simple performance test. It draws the well known svg
  tiger using just simple stroke and fill of solid colors. It
  consists of 240 paths.

* test_dash

  Shows different stroke dashing modes.

* test_linear

  A rectangle drawn using 3-color linear gradient fill paint

* test_radial

  A rectangle drawn using 3-color radial gradient fill paint

* test_interpolate

  Interpolates between two paths - an apple and a pear.

* test_image

	Images are drawn using VG_DRAW_IMAGE_MULTIPLY image mode to be
  multiplied with radial gradient fill paint.

* test_pattern

  An image is drawn in multiply mode with an image pattern fill
  paint.


III. IMPLEMENTATION STATUS
=============================

Khronos states in the OpenVG specification, that the contexts for all
their client APIs are expected to be created via the EGL API. Since
EGL to use with ShivaVG has not been implemented yet, there is a set
of extension functions provided for the task of creating, maintaining
and destroying the OpenVG context. (See next section EXTENSIONS for
details.)

What follows is a description of which functions or to what extent
a certain function has been implemented. When a function is marked
as PARTIALLY implemented, the TODO file or the comments in the code
itself would provide further clues.

IV. EXTENSIONS
=============================

There are three extensions to the API that manipulate the OpenVG
context as a temporary replacement for EGL:

VGboolean vgCreateContextSH(VGint width, VGint height)

  Creates an OpenVG context on top of an existing OpenGL context
  that should have been manually initialized by the user of the
  library. Width and height specify the size of the rendering
  surface. No multi-threading support has been implemented yet.
  The context is created once per process.

void vgResizeSurfaceSH(VGint width, VGint height)

  Should be called whenever the size of the surface changes (e.g.
  the owner window of the OpenGL context is resized).

void vgDestroyContextSH()

  Destroys the OpenVG context associated with the calling process.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
