Rose Curve Generator

By Victor Barger, Waunakee, WI

An application of mathematics which produces fascinating designs is the graphing of trigonometric functions using polar coordinates. Each function leads to a beautiful design which bears a strong resemblance to a flower, such as the rose. With its excellent graphics capabilities and superior user interface, the Macintosh is perfect for quickly plotting “rose” functions on the screen with a program simple enough that anyone can use it. The application described in this article takes full advantage of these capabilities to allow the user to experience the graphic beauty of trigonometry.

Using Rose Curves

After launching Rose Curves, a window will open in the center of the screen and the default function will be drawn inside. (See Figure 1) Both the standard apple menu and a Control menu will be in the menu bar. The apple menu contains the item “About Rose Curves...” and the names of all desk accessories available to the user from the System file. Under the Control menu are two options: Change Parameters and Quit. When the Change Parameters item is selected a window similar to the one in Figure 2 is opened in the center of the screen. With this window the user can select the function to be drawn, choose the size of the drawing and indicate whether the drawing should be multilayered. Function and size are selected by clicking on the appropriate function name or size. For example, selecting cos (sin 100r) gives the design in Figure 3. If multilayered is selected, the function will be drawn at the original size and then shrunk repeatedly to create a “layered” effect, making the design more interesting: See Figure 4.

Entering the Program

Start up the Macintosh 68000 Development System. The startup disk should be titled ‘MDS1’ and the external disk ‘MDS2.’ The applications Edit, Asm, Link, Exec and RMaker should be on MDS1 and a folder entitled ‘.D Files’ with SysEqu.D, ToolEqu.D, QuickEqu.D, and MacTraps.D inside on MDS2. To make Rose Curves work on a Macintosh 512 with the old ROM, FixMath.Txt and FixMath.Rel must also be in the .D Files folder (The information on where to get these two files is under How Rose Curves Works). FixTraps.Txt and FixTraps.Rel are files which were distributed by Apple Computer under the Apple Software Supplement to aid assembly language programmers in calculating basic arithmetic and trigonometric functions. As the program is presented here, you have everything you need to type the program in and run it on a new ROM machine, since the FixTraps necessary for this program are explicitly defined with the ".TRAPS" statement at the start of the program. The program may also be entered into the new MPW assembler, or assembled with the Consulair C system, which includes the complete MDS assembler built-in.

To create the program, simply assemble the Rose.Asm listing. Then compile the resource file with RMaker. Finally execute the linker on the link file listing and the program object file and resource object file (both ".REL" files) will be linked together, an application generated, and the cute rose application icon should appear on the disk. Double click "Rose Curves" and your in business making fascinating polar coordinate art.

How Rose Curves Works

The program begins by initializing the standard managers, initializing its variables, setting up the menu bar and opening the window. The initialized variables are Equation, Scale, RealScale, Multilayered and drawn. Equation contains the item number of the selected function in the Change Parameters dialog. To obtain the real equation number, subtract 3 from Equation. Scale is the item number of the selected scale or “size” and RealScale is the actual scalar multiplied on each point before drawing it. Multilayered determines whether the rose will be layered. Finally, drawn is a boolean expression which determines whether the window needs to be updated by redrawing the rose (false) or simply by copying the rose from the offscreen bitmap (true). The offscreen bitmap is also created in this routine. To create a bitmap, create an area in memory with space for a pointer, a word and a rectangle. In Rose Curves, this appears at the end of the program under the label windowBitMap. Now select the rectangle of the bitmap and calculate the rowbytes with the equation

       rowbytes = int((xright - xleft)/8+1)

If rowbytes is odd, round it up. Suppose our rectangle is 0, 0, 50, 96 (remember that a QuickDraw rectangle is stored as y1, x1, y2, x2). Then rowbytes would be 14 and the bitmap would look like this:

myBitMapDC.L0  ;pointer to bitmap storage
 DC14 ;rowbytes
 DC0, 0, 50, 96  ;boundsRect

The size of the bitmap storage must be determined before it can be created. Use the equation

 size = rowbytes * (ybottom - ytop)

To create the bitmap, use the following routine.

 move.l #size,D0
 _NewPtr;allocate new pointer
 lea  myBitMap,A1
 move.l A0,(A1)  ;put the pointer to the
 ;storage in myBitMap

To copy a picture from the current window to myBitMap, use this routine

 pea  aPort(A5)  ;storage for the port
 _GetPort ;get the current port
 move.l aPort(A5),A0 ;put the port pointer in A0
 pea  portBits(A0) ;push ptr to port’s bitmap
 pea  myBitMap ;push ptr to our bitMap
 pea  srcRect  ;push srcRect
 pea  dstRect  ;push dstRect
 clr  -(SP) ;srcCopy
 clr.l  -(SP)  ;no mask region
 _CopyBits;copy the bits

Finally, remember to dispose of the bitmap’s storage after finishing with it. This is accomplished simply with

move.l  myBitMap,A0

The EventLoop allows desk accessories to perform their periodic events by calling _SystemTask and, if an event occurs, branches to HandleEvent which transfers execution to the appropriate routine: Activate, Update, KeyDown or MouseDown. The Activate routine activates or deactivates the Rose Curves window depending on what the user requested. Update updates the window by either drawing the curve or using _CopyBits, depending on whether the curve had been drawn previously. KeyDown checks if the command-key was down when the KeyDown event occurred by testing bit eight of the ModifyReg. If bit eight equals one, a command-key was pressed and _MenuKey is called to determine the appropriate menuNumber and itemNumber for Choices, the routine which handles menu selections. MouseDown finds the area the mouse was clicked in using _FindWindow and jumps to the appropriate routine to handle the click.

Several other important routines are SystemEvent, InMenu, UnhiliteMenu, NextEvent InAppleMenu and ParameterChange. SystemEvent passes mouse clicks in system windows to the system for it to handle. InMenu converts a mouse click in the menu bar to the correct menuNumber and itemNumber for Choices. Choices then calls InAppleMenu if the click was in the apple menu, calls ParameterChange if the first item in the Control menu was selected, or quits to the Finder if Quit was selected. UnhiliteMenu unhighlights all menus in the menu bar and NextEvent returns to the EventLoop. InAppleMenu either displays the InfoAlert About Rose Curves... or opens the selected desk accessory using _OpenDeskAccessory. Finally, ParameterChange opens the parameter dialog, hilights the buttons which correspond to the Equation, Scale and Multilayered variables and monitors the user’s actions until the dialog is dismissed with the OK or Cancel button. If OK was selected, ParameterChange updates the variables Equation, Scale, RealScale and Multilayered before closing the dialog and returning to the EventLoop.

The heart of the program lies in the DrawRose subroutine. Before outlining how it operates, an explanation of the fixed-point math routines is needed. Fixed-point math is not as accurate as floating-point math, but much faster. With graphics programs, speed is often much more important than accuracy, especially when there is the possibility of losing the user’s attention. Since Apple elected not to implement the fixed-point routines into the old toolbox, they released the file's FixTraps. Txt and FixMath.Rel in the Apple Software Supplement of May 6, 1985. These files are available from local user groups, bulletin boards, Apple dealerships or directly from Apple. FixTraps.Txt includes a nice description of the “toolbox additions” and FixMath.Rel contains the actual routines. To use the fixed-point routines on a Macintosh with the old ROM, type ‘INCLUDE FixTraps.Txt’ at the beginning of your .Asm file. Also include the line ‘FixTraps’ after the name of the application under development in the .Link file. To use the fixed-point routines on a Macintosh with the new ROM, simply define the trap using .TRAP at the beginning of the ASM file as we did in our listing here. The complete list of new fixed-point traps is as follows:

Long2Fix $A83F

FracSin $A848

FracSqrt $A849

FracMul $A84A

FracDiv $A84B

FixAtan2 $A818

FixDiv $A84D

Fix2Long $A840

Fix2Frac $A841

Frac2Fix $A842

Fix2X $A843

X2Fix $A844

Frac2X $A845

X2Frac $A846

FracCos $A847

The fixed-point routines support three types of numbers: longint (long integer), fixed, and fract (fractional). Type longint represents integers between ±2147483647, type fixed represents fractional quantities between ±32768 with about 5 digits of accuracy and type fract represents fractional quantities between ±2 with about 9 digits of accuracy. Rose Curves uses _FracSin, _FracCos, _FixMul and _FracMul to perform its arithmetic operations. These routines work like any other toolbox trap: space is cleared on the stack for the result, the parameters are pushed on the stack and the trap is called. The Pascal definitions for these routines are

function FracSin( x : Fixed ) : Fract
function FracCos( x : Fixed ) : Fract
function FixMul( x, y : Fixed ) : Fixed
function FracMul( x, y : Fract ) : Fract

With _FixMul and _FracMul it is possible to pass parameters of different types than specified. For example, one could pass x as type longint and y as type fixed to _FixMul and the result would be type longint. The following table contains the result types for multiplying different types using _FixMul and _FracMul.

_FixMul _FracMul

x y result x y result

fixed fixed fixed fract fract fract

longint fixed longint longint fract longint

fixed longint longint fract longint longint

fract fixed fract fixed fract fixed

fixed fract fract fract fixed fixed

Note: To convert a number to type Fract, multiply it by 65536. To convert a number to type Fixed, multiply it by 32768.

DrawRose begins by changing the cursor to a watch, setting the counter to 721 steps (1 + 360° x 1/increment), the increment to 572 (.5° in fixed-point radians) and the present angle to 0. It then loops until the counter is zero, evaluating the current function (bsr EvalFunction), converting the function result to rectangular coordinates and scaling and centering the points. After completing each layer, the program decreases the scale by 20 and redraws the curve if multilayered was selected. After drawing all of the layers, the variable drawn is set to true and the image in the window is copied onto the offscreen bitmap for future update events.

Possible Modifications

Rose Curves could be improved in several ways. The most obvious way would be to add more functions to the program. To accomplish this, add the “function” buttons in the Rose.R file and add the subroutines to evaluate the new functions to Rose.Asm. Note that the displacement to the function must be included in the equation table for the new subroutine to be executed. To do this, add the line DC functionLabel-EquationTable after the line DC Six-EquationTable. As more functions are added, keep adding the labels to the equation table. The second improvement would be to decrease the time required to draw the rose when multilayered is on. To do this, copy the image of the rose into an offscreen bitmap using _CopyBits after the first rose has been drawn. Then shrink CopyBits’ dstRect and copy the rose from the offscreen bitmap onto the screen. Although many times faster, this method greatly reduces the accuracy with which layers are drawn since they are being scaled by _CopyBits, not mathematically graphed. An option to this problem would be to include a checkbox in the Change Parameters dialog titled ‘Accurate Multilayers.’ If selected, Rose Curves would draw the layers using its normal drawing routine. If not, Rose Curves would use the copy-and-shrink method, thus giving the user the choice of accuracy or speed.
