SUBROUTINE SPLF(n, parray, iarray)
REAL parray(3,n)
INTEGER*2 iarray(n)
SUBROUTINE SPLFI(n, parray, iarray)
INTEGER*4 parray(3,n)
INTEGER*2 iarray(n)
SUBROUTINE SPLFS(n, parray, iarray)
INTEGER*2 parray(3,n)
INTEGER*2 iarray(n)
SUBROUTINE SPLF2(n, parray, iarray)
REAL parray(2,n)
INTEGER*2 iarray(n)
SUBROUTINE SPLF2I(n, parray, iarray)
INTEGER*4 parray(2,n)
INTEGER*2 iarray(n)
SUBROUTINE SPLF2S(n, parray, iarray)
INTEGER*2 parray(2,n)
INTEGER*2 iarray(n)

All of the preceding routines are functionally the same. They differ only in the type declarations of their parameters and in whether they assume a two- or three-dimensional screen.


The splf subroutine draws Gouraud-shaded polygons using the current pattern and writemask. Polygons are represented as arrays of points. The first and last points automatically connect to close a polygon. After the polygon is drawn, the current graphics position is set to the first point in the array.

The six different forms for the splf subroutine are as follows:

2-D 3-D
Int16 splf2s splfs
Int32 splf2i splfi
float splf2 splf

The syntax for each of the subroutine forms is the same except for the parameter type. They differ only in that splf expects real coordinates, splfi expects integer coordinates, and splfs expects short integer coordinates. In addition, the splf2* routines assume a 2-D point instead of a 3-D point.

  1. This subroutine must be used in color map mode.
  2. This subroutine cannot be used to add to a display list.


n Specifies the number of vertices in the polygon. There can be no more than 256 vertices in a single polygon.
parray Specifies an array containing the vertices of a polygon.
iarray Specifies an array containing the color map indexes that determine the intensities of the vertices of the polygon.
