       xgc - X graphics demo


       xgc [-toolkitoption ...]


       The xgc program demonstrates various features of the X graphics primitives.  In X, most of
       the details about the graphics to be generated are stored in a resource called a  graphics
       context  (GC).   The  xgc  program  provides  a  user  interface  for  setting  various GC
       components.  Pressing the "Run" button causes these results to be displayed in  the  large
       drawing  window  on  the right.  Timing information is displayed in the window immediately

       The items in the upper left hand window work as follows:

       Function - specify the logical function with which primitives will drawn.  The most  usual
       setting  is  "set",  i.e.  simply  to  render pixels without regard to what has been drawn

       LineStyle - specify  whether  lines  should  be  drawn  solid  in  foreground,  dashed  in
       foreground or alternating foreground and background.

       CapStyle - specify the appearance of the ends of a line.

       JoinStyle  -  specify  the  appearance  of joints between consecutive lines drawn within a
       single graphics primitive.

       FillStyle - specify whether lines, text and fill requests are solid, tiled with  a  pixmap
       or stippled.

       FillRule - specifies the rule used to fill polygons.  The EvenOdd rule means that if areas
       overlap an odd number of times, they are not drawn.  Winding rule means  that  overlapping
       areas are always filled, regardless of how many times they overlap.

       ArcMode  -  specifies  the  rule for filling of arcs.  The boundary of the arc is either a
       Chord or two radii.

       planemask - specifies which planes of the drawing window are modified.   By  default,  all
       planes are modified.

       dashlist - specifies a pattern to be used when drawing dashed lines.

       Line Width - specifies the width in pixels of lines to be drawn.  Zero means to draw using
       the server's fastest algorithm with a line width of one pixel.

       Font - specifies the font to be used for text primitives.

       Foreground and  Background  -  specify  the  pixel  values  to  be  applied  when  drawing
       primitives.  The Foreground value is used as the pixel value for set bits in the source in
       all primitives.  The Background value is used as the pixel value for  unset  bits  in  the
       source  when using Copy Plane, drawing lines with LineStyle of DoubleDash and filling with
       FillStyle of OpaqueStippled.

       Percentage of Test - scrollbar permits specifying only a percentage of the test to be run.
       The number at the left indicates the current setting, which defaults to 100%.

       The  window  labeled  "Test"  permits  choice of one a number of graphics primitive tests,
       including Points, Segments, Lines, Arcs and  Filled  Arcs,  8-bit  Text  and  Image  Text,
       Rectangles and Filled Rectangles, Image draws, as well as Copy Plane and Copy Area.

       The window to the right of this has buttons which permit record/playback of the primitives


       Xgc accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options.


       This program accepts the usual defaults for toolkit applications.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources  stored  in
               the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.




       This  program  isn't  really  finished  yet,  but it probably never will be, since it only
       demonstrates the original  X11  core  protocol  rendering  operations,  which  few  modern
       programs use anymore.
