NAME

       PS_begin_pattern — Starts a new pattern

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pslib.h>

       int  PS_begin_pattern(PSDoc  *psdoc,  float width, float height, float xstep, float ystep,
       int painttype)

DESCRIPTION

       A pattern can be thought of like a color for drawing and filling.   Actually,  PS_setcolor
       is  used  to  apply  a  pattern.   The pattern itself has given dimension an a stepping in
       horizontal and vertical direction. The stepping comes into effect when the area to be fill
       is  larger  than  the  pattern  itself. In such a case the pattern will be repeated with a
       distance of xstep in horizontal and ystep in vertical direction.

       Each call of PS_begin_pattern must be accompanied by a call to PS_end_pattern(3).

RETURN VALUE

       Returns identifier of the pattern or zero in case  of  an  error.   The  identifier  is  a
       positiv number greater 0.
