void sboxs (Scoord x1, Scoord y1, Scoord x2, Scoord y2)
SUBROUTINE SBOX(x1, y1, x2, y2) REAL x1, y1, x2, y2
SUBROUTINE SBOXI(x1, y1, x2, y2) INTEGER*4 x1, y1, x2, y2
SUBROUTINE SBOXS(x1, y1, x2, y2) INTEGER*2 x1, y1, x2, y2
Note: For FORTRAN users, the INTEGER*2 version, the SBOXS subroutine, should not be called with integer constant parameters. For example, 2 is an integer constant; JJ is an integer variable. The XL FORTRAN compiler, invoked by the xlf command, stores all integer constants as long integers (INTEGER*4), not as short integers (INTEGER*2). Invoking the short version of this subroutine with an integer constant will result in unexpected behavior.
All of the foregoing functions are essentially the same except for the type declarations of the parameters.
The sbox subroutine draws a two-dimensional, screen-aligned rectangle using the current color, writemask, linestyle, and linestyle repeat. Only these attributes, not the normal line attributes, are used. Most of the lighting/shading/viewing pipeline is bypassed.
The sides of the rectangle are parallel to the screen x and y axes. This rectangle cannot be rotated. The z coordinate is set to zero.
When you use the sbox subroutine, you must not use lighting, backfacing, depth-cueing, z-buffering, Gouraud shading, or alphablending.
This subroutine may be faster than the rect subroutine. It is useful for drawing a large number of rectangles that do not require rotating.
|x1||Specifies the x coordinate of a corner of the box.|
|y1||Specifies the y coordinate of a corner of the box.|
|x2||Specifies the x coordinate of the opposite corner of the box.|
|y2||Specifies the y coordinate of the opposite corner of the box.|
