7.2.4 Setting the Fill Tile and Stipple
Some displays have hardware support for tiling or
stippling with patterns of specific sizes.
Tiling and stippling operations that restrict themselves to those specific
sizes run much faster than such operations with arbitrary size patterns.
Xlib provides functions that you can use to determine the best size,
tile, or stipple for the display
as well as to set the tile or stipple shape and the tile or stipple origin.
To obtain the best size of a tile, stipple, or cursor, use
To obtain the best fill tile shape, use
To obtain the best stipple shape, use
To set the fill tile of a given GC, use
To set the stipple of a given GC, use
To set the tile or stipple origin of a given GC, use
