14 Image Core

 (require mrlib/image-core)

This library is the core part of the 2htdp/image library that DrRacket links into the namespace of all languages that it runs. This ensures that minimal support for these images are the same in all languages, specifically including support for printing the images and constructing the core data structures making up an image.


(render-image image dc dx dy)  void?

  image : image?
  dc : (is-a?/c dc<%>)
  dx : number?
  dy : number?
Draws image in dc at the position (dx,dy).


(image? v)  boolean?

  v : any/c
Recognizes the images that library handles.


(un/cache-image image b)  image?

  image : image?
  b : any/c
Returns an image that either caches its drawing in the snip draw method or doesn’t, depending on b.


(compute-image-cache image)  void?

  image : image?
When the image has a bitmap-cache (which it does by default, although un/cache-image can disable it), this function fills in the bitmap, doing the work to draw image into the bitmap.

Ordinarily, the image’s bitmap cache is computed the first time the image is actually rendered.
