    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes functions of Computer Graphics Interface related to creation, modification, and manipulation of graphic pictures using segments. Should be read in conjunction with ISO/IEC 9636-1, ISO/IEC 9636-2, and ISO/IEC 9636-3. The relationship of this part of ISO/IEC 9636 to the other parts of ISO/IEC 9636 is described in this part pertains to Virtual Devices of class OUTPUT and OUTIN.
