Returns values of specific pixels in RGB mode.
Int32 readRGB (Int16 number, RGBvalue red[ ], RGBvalue green[ ], RGBvalue blue[ ])
INTEGER*4 FUNCTION READRG(number, red, green, blue) INTEGER*4 number CHARACTER*(*) red, green, blue;
Note: For FORTRAN users, this function accepts long integer parameters (INTEGER*4) when invoked from a FORTRAN program, although it accepts short integers when invoked from a C program. The C and FORTRAN syntax shown here reflect this difference.
The readRGB subroutine attempts to read specific pixel values from the frame buffer in RGB mode. The returned value of this function is the number of pixels actually read. A returned function value of 0 (zero) indicates that the starting point is not a valid character position.
The readRGB subroutine reads the pixel values into the arrays specified by the red, green, and blue parameters starting from the current character position along a single scan line (constant y) in the direction of increasing x.
The readRGB subroutine returns the number of pixels read, which is the number requested if the starting point is a valid character position (inside the current viewport). The subroutine returns 0 (zero) if the starting point is not a valid character position. The values of pixels read outside of the viewport or screenmask are undefined.
The readRGB subroutine updates the current character position to one pixel to the right of the last one read. The current character position is undefined if the new position is outside the viewport.
Use the readsource subroutine to specify which buffer is read. In RGB double buffer mode, by default the back buffer is read.
The rectread subroutine provides significantly better performance for pixel block transfers. Even when only one row of pixels needs to be read, use the rectread subroutine.
|number||Specifies the number of pixels read by the function.|
|red||Specifies the array in which the red pixel values will be stored.|
|green||Specifies the array in which the green pixel values will be stored.|
|blue||Specifies the array in which the blue pixel values will be stored.|
The returned value of this function is the number of pixels that the system actually reads. The returned function value is 0 (zero) if any part of the specified rectangle is off the screen.
This subroutine is part of GL in the AIXwindows Environment/6000 Version 1, Release 2 with AIXwindows/3D Feature.
