P.S. If anyone knows how to rotate the entire Cairo surface, please show me. $cr->rotate( PI/6 ); dosn't seem to work.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Cairo; use constant { IMG_WIDTH => 480, IMG_HEIGHT => 480, PI => 3.1416 }; die "png backend not supported" unless (Cairo::HAS_PNG_FUNCTIONS); my $png = "$0.png"; my $surf = Cairo::ImageSurface->create ('rgb24', IMG_WIDTH, IMG_HEIGHT +); my $cr = Cairo::Context->create ($surf); # to avoid a bit of angular confusion... :-) # arc angles are measured from 0 on the x-axis, and angles are # measured clockwise. So the usual 90 degree position is 3*PI/2. # There is a negative arc function, see the perldoc for Cairo. # In other words, the positive y axis is directed downward #left $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, IMG_HEIGHT/2, IMG_WIDTH/2, 3*PI/2, PI/2); $cr->set_source_rgb (1, 1, 1); $cr->fill; #right $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, IMG_HEIGHT/2, IMG_WIDTH/2, PI/2, 3*PI/2); $cr->set_source_rgb (0, 0, 0); $cr->fill; #top semicircle $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, 3*IMG_HEIGHT/4, IMG_HEIGHT/4, 3*PI/2, PI/2); $cr->set_source_rgb (0, 0, 0); $cr->fill; #bottom semicircle $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, IMG_HEIGHT/4, IMG_HEIGHT/4, PI/2 , 3*PI/2 ); $cr->set_source_rgb (1, 1, 1); $cr->fill; #encompassing boundary $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, IMG_HEIGHT/2, IMG_WIDTH/2, 0, 2*PI); $cr->set_source_rgb (1, 1, 1); $cr->stroke; # opposite kernels # top $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, IMG_HEIGHT/4, IMG_WIDTH/20, 0, 2*PI); $cr->set_source_rgb (0, 0, 0); $cr->fill; #bottom $cr->arc (IMG_WIDTH/2, 3*IMG_HEIGHT/4, IMG_HEIGHT/20, 0, 2*PI); $cr->set_source_rgb (1, 1, 1); $cr->fill; $surf->write_to_png ($png); system ("display $png"); # requires ImageMagick to be installed
