Description

Mirrors the essentials of PostScript's path creation functionality.

Most operators can be easily translated into PostScript, and, conversely, any PostScript path can be represented as a TIFF ClipPath. However, the TIFF ClipPath list of operators is not identical to the current list of PostScript operators; for simplicity, some of the PostScript variants have been dropped, and a few operators, such as polyto and rpolyto have been added. polyto and rpolyto were added in order to make complex TIFF polygonal clip paths more compact.
