NAME

       tickit_rect_add - obtain the union sum of two rectangles

SYNOPSIS

       #include <tickit.h>

       int tickit_rect_add(TickitRect dst[3],
           const TickitRect *a, const TickitRect *b);

       Link with -ltickit.

DESCRIPTION

       tickit_rect_add()  initialises  the  rectangle  structures  given by dst (which must be an
       array capable of containing at least three  rectangle  structures)  with  a  set  of  non-
       overlapping  rectangles  covering  the same area as the two given by a and b. Depending on
       the geometry of  the  given  rectangles  it  may  create  one,  two,  or  three  resultant
       rectangles.  It  returns  the  number  of  rectangular regions initialised into the result
       array.

       If the original rectangles do not touch then the result will contain  just  those  two. If
       they  touch  then  the  result  will  contain  the one to three non-overlapping horizontal
       stripes that cover the same area, in order of increasing line number.

RETURN VALUE

       tickit_rect_add() returns the number of rectangles written to dst.
