in thread (OT) missing perl access to anti grain geometry library?

My reading of agg implies that it's a (new) set of algorithms for rendering vector graphics primitives with sub-pixel accuracy. However, it is not a rasterizer toolkit.

While the Gtk2 gui toolkit includes a rasterizer for a specific standard of vector graphics, it probably doesn't use the agg algorithms under the covers.

    Ok, so sell me on why agg is superior? Is Microsoft or Google adopting it, or is it gonna become big?

      It's not about being superior, that's comparing apples to oranges. agg is an algorithms library with a focus on accurate rendering. Who cares if it's going to be big? If you don't want to work on the port, then move along. No need to discourage others.

[marto]: Corion, I can do some non-technical things, but there's no way for me to connect to the clients network.
[marto]: which is a shame, I had a really productive day yesterday
[Corion]: marto: Meh, so it'll be a day of cleaning out email...
[marto]: and hoped that I'd be able to continue the momentum :)
[marto]: I can't even access client email, nor my employers since those idiots moved to citrix
[marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
