This class represents a base for generic transformations of 2D points between different coordinate systems (including scaling and rotation). The transformations map objects between one coordinate system and another where it is assumed that a nested hierarchy of transformations can be defined.
It is assumed that transformations deal with Integer points. All transformations should return Integer coordinates (even though float points may be passed in as argument).
Compositions of transformations MUST work in the following order. A 'global' transformation (the argument in #composedWithGlobal:) is defined as a transformation that takes place between the receiver (the 'local') transformation and any 'global' point computations, whereas a 'local' transformation (e.g., the argument in #composedWithLocal:) takes place between the receiver ('global') and any 'local' points. For the transformation methods this means that combining a global and a local transformation will result in the following order:
globalPointToLocal: globalPoint
"globalPoint > globalTransform > localTransform > locaPoint"
^localTransform globalPointToLocal:
(globalTransform globalPointToLocal: globalPoint)
localPointToGlobal: localPoint
"localPoint > localTransform > globalTransform > globalPoint"
^globalTransform localPointToGlobal:
(localTransform localPointToGlobal: localPoint)
instance creation

identity

queries

isAbstract

Return if this class is an abstract class.
True is returned here for myself only; false for subclasses.
Abstract subclasses must redefine this again.
accessing

inverseTransformation

Return the inverse transformation of the receiver
** This method raises an error  it must be redefined in concrete classes **
composing

composedWithGlobal: aTransformation

Return the composition of the receiver and the global transformation passed in.
A 'global' transformation is defined as a transformation that takes place
between the receiver (the 'local') transformation and any 'global' point
computations, e.g., for the methods
globalPointToLocal: globalPoint
globalPoint > globalTransform > localTransform > locaPoint
localPointToGlobal: localPoint
localPoint > localTransform > globalTransform > globalPoint

composedWithLocal: aTransformation

Return the composition of the receiver and the local transformation passed in.
A 'local' transformation is defined as a transformation that takes place
between the receiver (the 'global') transformation and any 'local' point
computations, e.g., for the methods
globalPointToLocal: globalPoint
globalPoint > globalTransform > localTransform > locaPoint
localPointToGlobal: localPoint
localPoint > localTransform > globalTransform > globalPoint
converting

asCompositeTransform

Represent the receiver as a composite transformation

asMatrixTransform2x3

Represent the receiver as a 2x3 matrix transformation
** This method raises an error  it must be redefined in concrete classes **
initialize

setIdentity

Initialize the receiver to the identity transformation (e.g., not affecting points)
** This method raises an error  it must be redefined in concrete classes **
testing

isCompositeTransform

Return true if the receiver is a composite transformation.
Composite transformations may have impact on the accuracy.

isIdentityTransformation

Return true if the receiver is the identity transform; that is, if applying to a point returns the point itself.
** This method raises an error  it must be redefined in concrete classes **

isMatrixTransform2x3

Return true if the receiver is 2x3 matrix transformation

isMorphicTransform

Return true if the receiver is a MorphicTransform, that is specifies the transformation values explicitly.

isNoScale

return true if the identity scale is in effect (i.e. saleFactor is 1);
return false, otherwise.
** This method raises an error  it must be redefined in concrete classes **

noScale

return true if the identity scale is in effect (i.e. saleFactor is 1);
return false, otherwise.
Obsolete: use isNoScale
** This is an obsolete interface  do not use it (it may vanish in future versions) **
