AHELP for CIAO 4.9


Context: region


Print out diagnostic details about a region.




The regPrintRegion routine prints out diagnostic information about the region - such as the various shapes and components within a region - to stdout. The regRegionString function should be used if a valid region string is needed.

The region module is not available by default; see "ahelp region" for information on loading the module.

Example 1

>>> from region import *
>>> reg = regParse("circle(10,10,4)")
>>> regPrintRegion(reg)
1 Circle(10,10,4) (Flag_Coord: Unknown) (Flag_Radius: Unknown)

Example 2

>>> reg = regParse("circle(10,10,4)-rect(4,2,5,4)")
>>> regPrintRegion(reg)
1 Circle(10,10,4) (Flag_Coord: Unknown) (Flag_Radius: Unknown)
1 !Rectangle(4,2,5,4) (Flag_Coord: Unknown) (Flag_Radius: Unknown)
