This book is more theory than practical, you need some teacher to fill in the blanks this book confronts you with. I have been programming for several years and never really got interested in graphics programming until recently. I found the material very well organized and easily comprehended. The book is theory centric, but does provide a nice introduction to the philosophy of the OpenGL library. You should take away the principles involved in graphics programming more so than a book of example code. One person found this helpful.

This unique work details a set of general graphics routines that C programmers can apply not only to the original IBM color graphics adapter but also to the popular Hercules Graphics Card and compatible monochrome graphics adapters. Focusing on low-level routines, text defines and discusses the elementary routines initgr, move, draw, and endgr.

Traditionally, the form of representation has been homogeneous coordinates.

IBM banked on being able to charge a license for using the BIOS - the software which controls the heart .

IBM banked on being able to charge a license for using the BIOS - the software which controls the heart of the machine. But other companies reverse engineered the BIOS and were able to produce clones of the machine without having to pay IBM a penny. Since then the PC has come to dominate the home and the office and led the move to the online era with cheap global communication, e-commerce and for consumers the ability to find the answer to almost any question on the web. Roger Kay, president of computer consultancy firm Endpoint, said the impact of the PC on all aspects our lives cannot be over-stated.

It was the first Tandy computer to support color graphics, and also supported cartridge programs and games, attempting to bridge both the home computing and video gaming markets. This standard was designed specially for the IBM PC and can achieve high data transfer rates through a 1:1 interleave factor and caching by the actual disk controller – the bottleneck is often the old AT bus and the drive may read data far quicker than the bus can accept it, so the cache is used as a buffer.

Somehow CGA graphics, the IBM PC’s first take on color, haven’t completely faded into history. Why’s that? Well, those four colors inspire a whole lot of nostalgia. The company released two separate graphic cards for the machine-one monochrome, one color-and put clear weaknesses in each. The Monochrome Display Adapter, beyond not supporting color, had solid text-rendering capabilities and a parallel port for printers. The Color Graphics Adapter, meanwhile, lacked the parallel port and didn't display text as nicely, as its maximum resolution (640x200) was lower than that of the monochrome card (720x350).

This book is about how microcomputers can be used to help control and interface with sensors in laboratory experiments. The computer work is done mostly in the context of several physics experiments, such as the physics of activation temperature, heat diffusion, and motion in fluids. These experiments show how with computer control conceptually sophisticated experiments can be performed with simple apparati.
