AcquireCacheView

Synopsis

const PixelPacket *AcquireCacheView( const ViewInfo *view, const long x, const long y,
                                     const unsigned long columns, const unsigned long rows,
                                     ExceptionInfo *exception );

Description

Method AcquireCacheView gets pixels from the in-memory or disk pixel cache as defined by the geometry parameters for read-only access. A pointer to the pixels is returned if the pixels are transferred, otherwise NULL is returned.

The format of the AcquireCacheView method is:

const PixelPacket *AcquireCacheView( const ViewInfo *view, const long x, const long y,
                                     const unsigned long columns, const unsigned long rows,
                                     ExceptionInfo *exception );
pixels:
Method AcquireCacheView returns a null pointer if an error occurs, otherwise a pointer to the view pixels.
view:
The address of a structure of type ViewInfo.
x,y,columns,rows:
These values define the perimeter of a region of pixels.
exception:
Return any errors or warnings in this structure.

AcquireMemory

Synopsis

void *AcquireMemory( const size_t size );

Description

AcquireMemory() returns a pointer to a block of memory of at least size bytes suitably aligned for any use. NULL is returned if insufficient memory is available or the requested size is zero.

The format of the AcquireMemory method is:

void *AcquireMemory( const size_t size );

A description of each parameter follows:

size:
The size of the memory in bytes to allocate.

CloneMemory

Synopsis

void *CloneMemory( void *destination, const void *source, const size_t size );

Description

CloneMemory() copies size bytes from memory area source to the destination. Copying between objects that overlap will take place correctly. It returns destination.

The format of the CloneMemory method is:

void *CloneMemory( void *destination, const void *source, const size_t size );

A description of each parameter follows:

size:
The size of the memory in bytes to allocate.

GetCacheView

Synopsis

PixelPacket *GetCacheView( ViewInfo *view, const long x, const long y,
                           const unsigned long columns, const unsigned long rows );

Description

GetCacheView() gets writeable pixels from the in-memory or disk pixel cache as defined by the geometry parameters. A pointer to the pixels is returned if the pixels are transferred, otherwise a NULL is returned.

The format of the GetCacheView method is:

PixelPacket *GetCacheView( ViewInfo *view, const long x, const long y,
                           const unsigned long columns, const unsigned long rows );
pixels:
Method GetCacheView returns a null pointer if an error occurs, otherwise a pointer to the view pixels.
view:
The address of a structure of type ViewInfo.
x,y,columns,rows:
These values define the perimeter of a region of pixels.

LiberateMemory

Synopsis

void LiberateMemory( void ** memory );

Description

LiberateMemory() frees memory that has already been allocated, and NULLs the pointer to it.

The format of the LiberateMemory method is:

void LiberateMemory( void ** memory );

A description of each parameter follows:

memory:
A pointer to a block of memory to free for reuse.

PopImagePixels

Synopsis

unsigned int PopImagePixels( const Image *, const QuantumType quantum,
                             unsigned char *destination );

Description

PopImagePixels() transfers one or more pixel components from the image pixel cache to a user supplied buffer. True is returned if the pixels are successfully transferred, otherwise False.

The format of the PopImagePixels method is:

unsigned int PopImagePixels( const Image *, const QuantumType quantum,
                             unsigned char *destination );
status:
Method PopImagePixels returns True if the pixels are successfully transferred, otherwise False.
image:
The image.
quantum:
Declare which pixel components to transfer (RGB, RGBA, etc).
destination:
The components are transferred to this buffer.

PushImagePixels

Synopsis

unsigned int PushImagePixels( Image *image, const QuantumType quantum_type,
                              const unsigned char *source );

Description

PushImagePixels() transfers one or more pixel components from a user supplied buffer into the image pixel cache of an image. It returns True if the pixels are successfully transferred, otherwise False.

The format of the PushImagePixels method is:

unsigned int PushImagePixels( Image *image, const QuantumType quantum_type,
                              const unsigned char *source );
status:
Method PushImagePixels returns True if the pixels are successfully transferred, otherwise False.
image:
The image.
quantum_type:
Declare which pixel components to transfer (red, green, blue, opacity, RGB, or RGBA).
source:
The pixel components are transferred from this buffer.

ReacquireMemory

Synopsis

void ReacquireMemory( void ** memory, const size_t size );

Description

ReacquireMemory() changes the size of the memory and returns a pointer to the (possibly moved) block. The contents will be unchanged up to the lesser of the new and old sizes.

The format of the ReacquireMemory method is:

void ReacquireMemory( void ** memory, const size_t size );

A description of each parameter follows:

memory:
A pointer to a memory allocation. On return the pointer may change but the contents of the original allocation will not.
size:
The new size of the allocated memory.

SetCacheView

Synopsis

PixelPacket *SetCacheView( ViewInfo *view, const long x, const long y,
                           const unsigned long columns, const unsigned long rows );

Description

SetCacheView() gets pixels from the in-memory or disk pixel cache as defined by the geometry parameters. A pointer to the pixels is returned if the pixels are transferred, otherwise a NULL is returned.

MagickPassFail SyncCacheView( ViewInfo *view );

A description of each parameter follows:

view:
The address of a structure of type ViewInfo.
