Subject Re: EPSDocumentGraphics2D: "Error: /rangecheck in --setmiterlimit--"
Date Mon, 29 May 2006 13:04:23 GMT
On one side, it is good to see that moving the PostScript Graphics2D
implementation to XML Graphics Commons has already caused someone to use
it as a stand-alone component. That was one of the goals.

On the other side, what you're seeing is probably the effect that
PSGraphics2D was written specifically as a backend for Batik. It seems
that somehow the miter limit on a BasicStroke instance was set to 0.
However, the PS language reference says that only values >=1 are valid.
The interesting thing is that BasicStroke (Sun JVM) has a check that
makes sure the miterlimit value does not go below 1. I wonder how this
happened. Anyway, I've improved the code in Commons a little. Please
verify that it's better now.
