XPolygonRegion()														  XPolygonRegion()

  XPolygonRegion - generate a region from points in a polygon.

  Region XPolygonRegion(points, n, fill_rule)
	XPoint points[];
	int n;
	int fill_rule;

  points    Specifies a pointer to an array of points.

  n	    Specifies the number of points in the polygon.

  fill_rule Specifies  whether	areas overlapping an odd number of times should be part of the region (WindingRule) or not part of the region
	    (EvenOddRule).  See Volume One, Chapter 5, The Graphics Context, for a description of the fill rule.

  The created region.

  XPolygonRegion() creates a region defined by connecting the specified points, and returns a pointer to be used to refer to the region.

  Regions are located relative to a point (the region origin) which is common to all regions.  In XPolygonRegion(), the coordinates specified
  in points are relative to the region origin.	By specifying all points relative to the drawable in which they will be used, the region ori-
  gin can be coincident with the drawable origin.  It is up to the application whether to interpret the location of the region relative to  a
  drawable or not.

  If  the  region  is to be used as a clip_mask by calling XSetRegion(), the upper-left corner of the region relative to the drawable used in
  the graphics request will be at (xoffset + clip_x_origin, yoffset + clip_y_origin), where xoffset and yoffset are the offset of the  region
  (if  any)  and  clip_x_origin  and clip_y_origin are elements of the GC used in the graphics request.  The fill_rule can be either of these

  EvenOddRule	 Areas overlapping an odd number of times are not part of the region.

  WindingRule	 Overlapping areas are always filled.

  For more information on structures, see Volume One, Chapter 6, Drawing Graphics and Text.

  Region is a pointer to an opaque structure type.
