thats fine, (i think i can manage to translate), but what is the C++ equivelent of the := operator?

ok, this line thing just isn''t working...

It compiles & runs, but it:

1) This is only drawing every other pixel.

2) I can''t be entirely sure it''s drawing the line EXACTALLY where it''s sopposed to be.

here''s the code:


int DrawLine(int StartX, int StartY,
int EndX, int EndY,
UINT* Buffer, int Pitch,
UINT Color)
int DeltaX = abs(EndX - StartX);
int DeltaY = abs(EndY - StartY);

int x = StartX;
int y = StartY;

int IncX1;
int IncX2;
int IncY1;
int IncY2;

int Numerator;
int Denominator;

int NumAdd;
int NumPixels;

if(EndX >= StartX) // X is increasing.

IncX1 = 1;
IncX2 = 2;
else //X is decreasing

IncX1 = -1;
IncX2 = -1;

if(EndY >= StartY) //Y is increasing

IncY1 = 1;
IncY2 = 1;
else //Y is decreasing

IncY1 = -1;
IncY2 = -1;

if(DeltaX > DeltaY) //there are more x-values then y-values

IncX1 = 0;
IncY2 = 0;
Denominator = DeltaX;
Numerator = DeltaX /2;
NumAdd = DeltaY;
NumPixels = DeltaX;
else //there are more y-values then x-values

IncX2 = 0;
IncY1 = 0;
Denominator = DeltaY;
Numerator = DeltaY/2;
NumAdd = DeltaX;
NumPixels = DeltaY;

int CurrentPixel;

for(CurrentPixel = 0; CurrentPixel <= NumPixels; CurrentPixel++)
Numerator += NumAdd;

if(Numerator >= Denominator)
Numerator -= Denominator;
x += IncX1;
y += IncY1;


x += IncX2;
y += IncY2;


return 1;
