Cairo is used for advanced graphics like anti-aliasing, paths, patterns, |
transformations. Once you are in advanced graphis mode, all the calls must
be made using the cairo library. If we are not in advanced graphics mode,
GC uses gdk calls.
You will notice in the GC code that the cairo calls are made after checking
if cairo != 0. The use of Cairo is initialized by calling
GC.setAdvanced(true) or by using advanced features such as
For example look at GC.drawLine() - with Cario it uses cairo_move_to(),
cairo_stroke() etc otherwise it calls gdk_draw_line().
