XSetClipOrigin(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		     XSetClipOrigin(3)

       XSetClipOrigin, XSetClipMask, XSetClipRectangles	- GC convenience rou-

       int XSetClipOrigin(Display *display, GC gc, int clip_x_origin, int

       int XSetClipMask(Display	*display, GC gc, Pixmap	pixmap);

       int XSetClipRectangles(Display *display,	GC gc, int clip_x_origin, int
	      clip_y_origin, XRectangle	rectangles[], int n, int ordering);

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

		 Specify the x and y coordinates of the	clip-mask origin.

       gc	 Specifies the GC.

       n	 Specifies the number of rectangles.

       ordering	 Specifies the ordering	relations on the rectangles.  You can
		 pass Unsorted,	YSorted, YXSorted, or YXBanded.

       pixmap	 Specifies the pixmap or None.

		 Specifies an array of rectangles that define the clip-mask.

       The XSetClipOrigin function sets	the clip origin	in the specified GC.
       The clip-mask origin is interpreted relative to the origin of whatever
       destination drawable is specified in the	graphics request.

       XSetClipOrigin can generate BadAlloc and	BadGC errors.

       The XSetClipMask	function sets the clip-mask in the specified GC	to the
       specified pixmap.  If the clip-mask is set to None, the pixels are are
       always drawn (regardless	of the clip-origin).

       XSetClipMask can	generate BadAlloc, BadGC, BadMatch, and	BadValue er-

       The XSetClipRectangles function changes the clip-mask in	the specified
       GC to the specified list	of rectangles and sets the clip	origin.	 The
       output is clipped to remain contained within the	rectangles.  The clip-
       origin is interpreted relative to the origin of whatever	destination
       drawable	is specified in	a graphics request.  The rectangle coordinates
       are interpreted relative	to the clip-origin.  The rectangles should be
       nonintersecting,	or the graphics	results	will be	undefined.  Note that
       the list	of rectangles can be empty, which effectively disables output.
       This is the opposite of passing None as the clip-mask in	XCreateGC,
       XChangeGC, and XSetClipMask.

       If known	by the client, ordering	relations on the rectangles can	be
       specified with the ordering argument.  This may provide faster opera-
       tion by the server.  If an incorrect ordering is	specified, the X
       server may generate a BadMatch error, but it is not required to do so.
       If no error is generated, the graphics results are undefined.  Unsorted
       means the rectangles are	in arbitrary order.  YSorted means that	the
       rectangles are nondecreasing in their Y origin.	YXSorted additionally
       constrains YSorted order	in that	all rectangles with an equal Y origin
       are nondecreasing in their X origin.  YXBanded additionally constrains
       YXSorted	by requiring that, for every possible Y	scanline, all rectan-
       gles that include that scanline have an identical Y origins and Y ex-

       XSetClipRectangles can generate BadAlloc, BadGC,	BadMatch, and BadValue

       BadAlloc	 The server failed to allocate the requested resource or
		 server	memory.

       BadGC	 A value for a GContext	argument does not name a defined GCon-

       BadMatch	 Some argument or pair of arguments has	the correct type and
		 range but fails to match in some other	way required by	the

       BadValue	 Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted
		 by the	request.  Unless a specific range is specified for an
		 argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is
		 accepted.  Any	argument defined as a set of alternatives can
		 generate this error.
