Description  :
WinGraph comes from the "WINdows GRAPHics unit". It is a unit written in Pascal for graphics programming under Win32. The source code is Delphi 6 and Free Pascal 2.0.2 compatible. This unit is intended to be a replacement of the standard Free Pascal's Graph unit for Win32. The later is highly compatible with the legacy BP graph unit for DOS, but, at the same time, it is slow and not very usable. In WinGraph most of the routines are implemented using Win32 GDI API calls (no VCL). So this unit offers good speed, quick coding, a certain degree of compatibility with BP graph unit and several extensions specific to Win32 GDI system. Also it initializes the OpenGL driver for doing more complex graphics programming and allows even mixing the WinGraph and OpenGL drawing routines. After calling the initialization routine the unit starts a dedicated thread and a GUI window for drawing. You can add keyboard and mouse support to your graphical program by using (included) support units Wi
 nCrt and WinMouse. Be aware that the unit is not entirely BP compatible
and the manuals are just in plain text.
