Group A (33:0) - Group B (33:20)

In the previous page, we showed the QisLibMT flow where two child threads independently pulled the geometries crossing our clipping window - the first thread pulled geometries from layer 33:0 and the second thread pulled geometries from layer 33:20. Now that we've got our data from the two source layers, we can use the QisMBool to subtract one layer from the other to produce our derived layer.

Boolean Function Flow get_api_extension note Create Instance note Binary MT Note


Get_api_extension: QisMBool can be called as an extension to the qismlib.so library.

Create Instance - this creates an instance of QisMBool.

Binary MT - The function that does the work. Parameters include the array of A group of vectors (and the number of vectors in the coordinate array), same for the second group, a handle to a Boolean settings object; the Boolean operation code, in this case: OP_DIFFERENCE=2, a pointer to where the results should go.
