Interfacing a high-level graphics language with the GSPC machine model Mannhardt, Christian
Recent efforts in computer graphics to design a graphics standard have contributed much towards the conceptual clarification of basic operations such as modelling, display and transformation functions. This thesis discusses how such concepts are reflected in a high-level graphics language with the aim of providing a tool to write effective and readable application programs. The high-level language is a graphics extension to Pascal. An interface is described how the multi-level graphics modelling system is mapped onto a single-level display system. The particular display system considered is the Core System which is proposed as a graphics standard by the SIGGRAPH-ACM Graphic Standards Planning Committee (GSPC).
