NAME
       PS_begin_pattern	-- Starts a new	pattern

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<pslib.h>

       int  PS_begin_pattern(PSDoc  *psdoc,  float  width, float height, float
       xstep, float ystep, int painttype)

DESCRIPTION
       A pattern can be	thought	of like	 a  color  for	drawing	 and  filling.
		     Actually,	 PS_setcolor  is  used	to  apply  a  pattern.
		      The pattern itself has given dimension an	a stepping  in
       horizontal  and		       vertical	 direction. The	stepping comes
       into effect when	the area to be		      fill is larger than  the
       pattern	itself.	 In such a case	the pattern will		be re-
       peated with a distance of xstep in horizontal		    and	 ystep
       in vertical direction.

       Each call of PS_begin_pattern must be accompanied	     by	a call
       to PS_end_pattern(3).

RETURN VALUE
       Returns identifier of  the  pattern  or	zero  in  case	of  an	error.
		   The identifier is a positiv number greater 0.
