slab

[prev][up][next]
slab [Apple] 1. /n./ A continuous horizontal line of pixels, all with the same color. 2. /vi./ To paint a slab on an output device. Apple's QuickDraw, like most other professional-level graphics systems, renders polygons and lines not with Bresenham's algorithm, but by calculating `slab points' for each scan line on the screen in succession, and then slabbing in the actual image pixels.
