Cairo Haskell binding - Core
This is a library for Haskell to use Cairo function straightforwardly. This package only contains non-optional functions (which is not controlled by building flags). Optional functions like surface supporting and font supporting are in "cairo-opts".
All the pointers should be reference/destroy -ed as manual required, if possible. Hopefully I did not miss any part or misunderstand the document.
When making the library, I tried to use more meaningful type name. So one looking at the type signature would know what to do.
A sugar monad wrapping all functions use
Context as first parameter, like cairo from gtk2hs does.
Checking the status of most Cairo objects is necessary, after creation, or a sequence of actions on it. A sugar method
with is given for
Render. And a method
use is given for regular IO monad.
