lqr_vmap_new - the LqrVMap object constructor
LqrVMap* lqr_vmap_new(gint* buffer, gint width, gint height,
gint depth, gint orientation);
The function lqr_vmap_new is the constructor for LqrVMap objects. It
can be used to convert saved data in a format which can be loaded in an
The parameter buffer must point to an an array of width * height ints
holding the visibility information.
The parameter depth represents the maximum possible amount of rescaling
with the given map.
The parameter orientation must be 0 if the map is to be used for
horizontal rescaling, 1 if it is to be used for vertical rescaling.
VISIBILITY MAPS FORMAT
The buffer must be an array of integers of size width * height. For an
horizontally oriented visibility map, the format is as such: each row
must contain all values between 1 and depth (included) exactly once,
with low values indicating the pixels which will be operated on first
during rescaling. All other pixels must be 0, which means that they
won´t be affected by rescaling. Such a map allows for horizontal
rescaling in the range from width - depth to width + depth. The same
applies to vertically oriented visibility maps, with columns in place
of rows and height in place of width.
The function returns the newly created LqrVMap if successful, or NULL
in case of insufficient memory.
