GnomePrintUnit

typedef struct {
	guint version : 8; /* Has to be 0 at moment */
	guint base : 8; /* Base */
	gdouble unittobase;
	/* I am not absolutely sure, but seems that gettext can do the magic */
	guchar *name;
	guchar *abbr;
	guchar *plural;
	guchar *abbr_plural;
} GnomePrintUnit;


enum GnomePrintUnitBase

typedef enum {
	GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_DIMENSIONLESS = (1 << 0), /* For percentages and like */
	GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_ABSOLUTE = (1 << 1),      /* Real world distances - i.e. mm, cm... */
	GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_DEVICE = (1 << 2),        /* Semi-real device-dependent distances i.e. pixels */
	GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_USERSPACE = (1 << 3)      /* Mathematical coordinates */
} GnomePrintUnitBase;


GNOME_PRINT_PS_UNIT

#define GNOME_PRINT_PS_UNIT   (gnome_print_unit_get_identity (GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_ABSOLUTE))

The GnomePrintUnit structure that represents the absolute units.


GNOME_PRINT_UNITS_ALL

#define GNOME_PRINT_UNITS_ALL (GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_DIMENSIONLESS | GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_ABSOLUTE | GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_DEVICE | GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_USERSPACE)

Convenience macro for all of the different GNOME_PRINT_UNIT_* macros.


gnome_print_unit_get_identity ()

const GnomePrintUnit * gnome_print_unit_get_identity    (guint base);

Retrieves the GnomePrintUnit structure referenced by base base.

base :

The base of the GnomePrintUnit to retrieve

Returns :

The GnomePrintUnit structure representing base. NULL on error

gnome_print_unit_get_default ()

const GnomePrintUnit * gnome_print_unit_get_default     (void);

Used to get the default GnomePrintUnit structure.

Returns :

A pointer to the default GnomePrintUnit structure

gnome_print_unit_get_by_name ()

const GnomePrintUnit * gnome_print_unit_get_by_name     (const guchar *name);

Get a unit based on its name, for example "Millimeter" or "Inches".

name :

Name of the unit, as a string pointer

Returns :

A constant pointer to a GnomePrintUnit, NULL on error

gnome_print_unit_get_by_abbreviation ()

const GnomePrintUnit * gnome_print_unit_get_by_abbreviation
                                                        (const guchar *abbreviation);

Get a unit based on its abbreviation, for example "cm" "pts" or "in".

abbreviation :

Abbreviation of the unit, as a string pointer

Returns :

A constant pointer to a GnomePrintUnit, NULL on error

gnome_print_unit_get_list ()

GList *             gnome_print_unit_get_list           (guint bases);

Gets a list of the units represented by the bases bases. To get a list of all units then use GNOME_PRINT_UNITS_ALL. The list that is returned should be freed using gnome_print_unit_free_list.

bases :

The bases to include in the list

Returns :

A pointer to a GList, NULL on error

gnome_print_unit_free_list ()

void                gnome_print_unit_free_list          (GList *units);

Used to free the list of units created by gnome_print_unit_get_list.

units :

A pointer to a GList to be freed

gnome_print_convert_distance ()

gboolean            gnome_print_convert_distance        (gdouble *distance,
                                                         const GnomePrintUnit *from,
                                                         const GnomePrintUnit *to);

Check whether a conversion between from and to can be made

distance :

The distance to convert, and the converted value on success

from :

Units to convert from

to :

Units to convert to

Returns :

TRUE if the conversion is possible, FALSE if it is not or on error

gnome_print_convert_distance_full ()

gboolean            gnome_print_convert_distance_full   (gdouble *distance,
                                                         const GnomePrintUnit *from,
                                                         const GnomePrintUnit *to,
                                                         gdouble ctmscale,
                                                         gdouble devicescale);

Convert a distance from one unit to another. You should supply a scale as necessary.

ctmscale is userspace->absolute, devicescale is device->absolute

distance :

The distance to convert, and the result on success

from :

Units to convert from

to :

Units to convert to

ctmscale :

The userspace scale to use

devicescale :

The device scale to use

Returns :

TRUE if the conversion is possible, FALSE if it is not or on error
