Paths are arbitrary shapes comprised of straight lines and Bézier curves. Each path contains a sequence of path elements, each of which requires zero or more absolute position parameters. The element types supported by gEDA are:
Returns ‘#t’ if and only if object is a path
Returns the number of path elements in path.
Returns the Kth element in path. The return value is a
list. The first item in the list is a symbol indicating the type of
element, and any additional items are the position parameters of the
element. For example, a call to
path-ref might return:
(curveto (800 . 525) (700 . 700) (500 . 700))
If K is not a valid offset into path, raises an ‘out-of-range’ error.
Removes the Kth element in path, returning path. If K is not a valid offset, raises an ‘out-of-range’ error.
Inserts a new element into path at index K. type is a symbol indicating the type of element to insert, using the parameters positions. If K is less than zero or greater than the number of elements path already contains, the new element is appended to the path. For example, to append a straight line section to the current path:
(path-insert! path -1 'lineto '(500. 100))
