Self-intersecting polygon regions are not supported.
The following self-intersecting lines can be used to create a line:
chips> clear() chips> x = [0.1, 0.9, 0.9, 0.1, 0.1] chips> y = [0.1,0.9, 0.1, 0.9, 0.1] chips> add_line(x, y)
but not a region:
chips> add_region(x, y) chips ERROR: Region creation attempt failed- degenerate polygons (duplicate or intersecting edges) are not supported
Regions may have sections missing in postscript or PDF formats
Regions may have sections missing on print out to postscript or PDF formats when sections of the region appear outside the frame or window. To avoid this, ensure the plot displays all the region or, if possible, filter the region so that only those parts within the plot area are used.
For an example of this, see the discussion of the FOV overlay gallery example.
