Gimp::PDL - Overwrite Tile/Region functions to work with piddles. This module is obsolete, please remove any references to it. SYNOPSIS
use Gimp; use Gimp::PDL; use PDL; DESCRIPTION
This module overwrites some methods of Gimp::Tile and Gimp::PixelRgn. The new functions return and accept piddles. The last argument (height) of "gimp_pixel_rgn_set_rect" is calculated from the piddle. There is no other way to access the raw pixeldata in Gimp. Some exmaples: $region = $drawable->get->pixel_rgn (0,0, 100,100, 1,0); $pixel = $region->get_pixel (5,7); # fetches the pixel from (5|7) print $pixel; # outputs something like # [255, 127, 0], i.e. in # RGB format ;) $region->set_pixel ($pixel * 0.5, 5, 7);# darken the pixel $rect = $region->get_rect (3,3,70,20); # get a horizontal stripe $rect = $rect->hclip(255/5)*5; # clip and multiply by 5 $region->set_rect($rect); # and draw it! undef $region; # and update it!

Gimp::OO - Pseudo-OO for Gimp functions. SYNOPSIS
use Gimp; # Gimp::OO is now part of Gimp. DESCRIPTION
As you might have noticed, you can sort most gimp functions fall into three groups, depending on the name-prefix: "gimp_", "plug_in_", "extension_" etc.. Whats more, there are functions groups like "gimp_image_" or "gimp_selection_", operating on a common object, Images and Selection in this case. If you only had the plain syntax, your scripts would quickly aquire the "vertical gimp syndrome": gimp_palette_set_foreground(...) gimp_layer_new(...) gimp_palette_set_background(...) gimp_image_add_layer(...) etc. Of course, your fingers will suffer from severe injuries as well. A solution to this situation is to use OO-syntax. Gimp plays some (very) dirty tricks and provides a number of classes, like "Gimp::Image" and "Gimp::Palette" that allow shorter identifiers to be used (all these appear with the "Gimp::" prefix as well as without, i.e. "Gimp::Palette" is the same class as "Palette"). If you call a method, "Gimp" tries to find a gimp function by prepending a number of prefixes until it finds a valid function: $image = Gimp->image_new(...); # calls gimp_image_new(...) $image = Image->new(...); # calls gimp_image_new as well $image = new Image(...); # the same in green Palette->set_foreground(...) # calls gimp_palette_set_foreground(..) Return values from functions are automatically blessed (through The Magic Autobless feature ;) to their corresponding classes, i.e. $image = new Image(...); # $image is now blessed to Gimp::Image $image->height; # calls gimp_image_height($image) $image->flatten; # likewise gimp_flatten($image) $image->histogram(...); # calls gimp_histogram($image,...), since # gimp_image_histogram does not exist The class argument ($image in the above examples) is prepended to the argument list. Another shortcut: many functions want a (redundant) image argument, like $image->shear ($layer, ...) Since all you want is to shear the $layer, not the $image, this is confusing as well. In cases like this, Gimp allows you to write: $layer->shear (...) And automatically infers the additional IMAGE-type argument. As the (currently) last goodie, if the first argument is of type INT32, its name is "run_mode" and there are no other ambiguties, you can omit it, i.e. these three calls are equivalent: plug_in_gauss_rle (RUN_NONINTERACTIVE, $image, $layer, 8, 1, 1); plug_in_gauss_rle ($image, $layer, 8, 1, 1); plug_in_gauss_rle ($layer, 8, 1, 1); You can call all sorts of sensible and not-so-sensible functions, so this feature can be abused: patterns_list Image; # will call gimp_patterns_list quit Plugin; # will quit the Gimp, not an Plugin. there is no image involved here whatsoever...
