What is Mid-Point Algorithm?

Mid-point algorithm is due to Bresenham which was modified by Pitteway and Van Aken. Assume that you have already put the point P at (x, y) coordinate and the slope of the line is 0 ≤ k ≤ 1 as shown in the following illustration. Now you need to decide whether to put the next … Continue reading What is Mid-Point Algorithm?


What is Bresenham Algorithm ?

The Bresenham algorithm is another incremental scan conversion algorithm. The big advantage of this algorithm is that, it uses only integer calculations. Moving across the x axis in unit intervals and at each step choose between two different y coordinates. For example, as shown in the following illustration, from position (2, 3) you need to … Continue reading What is Bresenham Algorithm ?

What is TCP/IP ?

A majority of the internet uses a protocol suite called the Internet Protocol Suite also known as the TCP/IP protocol suite. This suite is a combination of protocols which encompasses a number of different protocols for different purpose and need. Because the two major protocols in this suites are TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and IP … Continue reading What is TCP/IP ?
