ABSTRACT
<p>The authors present the statistical distributions of line lengths and directions (slopes) in general graphics applications. They show practical facts of line characterization to guide graphics adapter hardware/software design decisions and provide realistic algorithm analysis assumptions. Their results are from analyzing randomly collected 1,012 graphics application programs written in OpenGL. Results are based on conventional CRT display frame buffer scan-conversion. </p>
INDEX TERMS
Line, scan-conversion, drawing efficiency, graphics primitives
