/* A #cairo_paginated_surface_t provides a very convenient wrapper that
* is well-suited for doing the analysis common to most surfaces that
* have paginated output, (that is, things directed at printers, or
* for saving content in files such as PostScript or PDF files).
* To use the paginated surface, you'll first need to create your
* 'real' surface using _cairo_surface_init() and the standard
* #cairo_surface_backend_t. Then you also call
* _cairo_paginated_surface_create which takes its own, much simpler,
* #cairo_paginated_surface_backend_t. You are free to return the result
* of _cairo_paginated_surface_create() from your public
* cairo_<foo>_surface_create(). The paginated backend will be careful
* to not let the user see that they really got a "wrapped"
* surface. See test-paginated-surface.c for a fairly minimal example
* of a paginated-using surface. That should be a reasonable example
* to follow.
* What the paginated surface does is first save all drawing
* operations for a page into a recording-surface. Then when the user calls
* cairo_show_page(), the paginated surface performs the following
* sequence of operations (using the backend functions passed to
* cairo_paginated_surface_create()):
* 1. Calls start_page() (if not %NULL). At this point, it is appropriate
* for the target to emit any page-specific header information into
* its output.
* 2. Calls set_paginated_mode() with an argument of %CAIRO_PAGINATED_MODE_ANALYZE
* 3. Replays the recording-surface to the target surface, (with an
* analysis surface inserted between which watches the return value
* from each operation). This analysis stage is used to decide which
* operations will require fallbacks.
* 4. Calls set_bounding_box() to provide the target surface with the
* tight bounding box of the page.
* 5. Calls set_paginated_mode() with an argument of %CAIRO_PAGINATED_MODE_RENDER
* 6. Replays a subset of the recording-surface operations to the target surface
* 7. Calls set_paginated_mode() with an argument of %CAIRO_PAGINATED_MODE_FALLBACK
* 8. Replays the remaining operations to an image surface, sets an
* appropriate clip on the target, then paints the resulting image
* surface to the target.
* So, the target will see drawing operations during three separate
* stages, (ANALYZE, RENDER and FALLBACK). During the ANALYZE phase
* the target should not actually perform any rendering, (for example,
* if performing output to a file, no output should be generated
* during this stage). Instead the drawing functions simply need to
* indicate whether rendering would be supported. And it should do
* this as quickly as possible. The FALLBACK phase allows the surface
* to distinguish fallback images from native rendering in case they
* need to be handled as a special case.
* Note: The paginated surface layer assumes that the target surface
* is "blank" by default at the beginning of each page, without any
* need for an explicit erase operation, (as opposed to an image
* surface, for example, which might have uninitialized content
* originally). As such, it optimizes away CLEAR operations that
* happen at the beginning of each page---the target surface will not
* even see these operations.
