I was trying to find the most efficient way to access the visRgn of the
current GraphPort. It this the best choice? (Assume that the port is
(let ((grafptr (#_NewPtr 4)))
(let ((visrgn (pref (%get-ptr grafptr 0) :grafport.visrgn)))
;; Do something with visrgn here...
Is there a way to do this with rlet?
I suppose if I had a view I could just use (wptr view), but I wanted
something that would always work to get the current port.
I wanted this code because at update time, the visrgn should reflect the
exact area of the screen that a view needs to update.
In general I'm having a little trouble understanding when you can use rlet
and (rref, href, or pref) and when you have to drop down to %get-xxx. Also
I haven't completely understood how you know when rlet will allocate a
handle or a pointer, and when you need to manually dereference these (with
%get-xxx) for a traps' arguments.
