DESCRIPTION
The QPoint class defines a point in the plane.

A point is specified by an x coordinate and a y coordinate.

The coordinate type is QCOORD (a 32-bit integer). The minimum value of
QCOORD is QCOORD_MIN (-2147483648) and the maximum value is QCOORD_MAX
(2147483647).

The coordinates are accessed by the functions x() and y(); they can be
set by setX() and setY() or by the reference functions rx() and ry().

Given a point p, the following statements are all equivalent:

p.setX( p.x() + 1 );
p += QPoint( 1, 0 );
p.rx()++;

A QPoint can also be used as a vector. Addition and subtraction of
QPoints are defined as for vectors (each component is added
separately). You can divide or multiply a QPoint by an int or a double.
The function manhattanLength() gives an inexpensive approximation of
the length of the QPoint interpreted as a vector.

Example:

//QPoint oldPos is defined somewhere else
MyWidget::mouseMoveEvent( QMouseEvent *e )
{
QPoint vector = e->pos() - oldPos;
if ( vector.manhattanLength() > 3 )
... //mouse has moved more than 3 pixels since oldPos
}

QPoints can be compared for equality or inequality, and they can be
written to and read from a QStream.

See also QPointArray, QSize, QRect, Graphics Classes, and Image
Processing Classes.

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QPOINT::QPOINT ()
Constructs a point with coordinates (0, 0) (isNull() returns TRUE).

QPOINT::QPOINT ( INT XPOS, INT YPOS )
Constructs a point with x value xpos and y value ypos.

BOOL QPOINT::ISNULL () CONST
Returns TRUE if both the x value and the y value are 0; otherwise
returns FALSE.

INT QPOINT::MANHATTANLENGTH () CONST
Returns the sum of the absolute values of x() and y(), traditionally
known as the "Manhattan length" of the vector from the origin to the
point. The tradition arises because such distances apply to travelers
who can only travel on a rectangular grid, like the streets of
Manhattan.

This is a useful, and quick to calculate, approximation to the true
length: sqrt(pow(x(),2)+pow(y(),2)).

QPOINT & QPOINT::OPERATOR*= ( INT C )
Multiplies this point's x and y by c, and returns a reference to this
point.

Example:

QPoint p( -1, 4 );
p *= 2;            // p becomes (-2,8)

QPOINT & QPOINT::OPERATOR*= ( DOUBLE C )
This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It
behaves essentially like the above function.

Multiplies this point's x and y by c, and returns a reference to this
point.

Example:

QPoint p( -1, 4 );
p *= 2.5;          // p becomes (-3,10)

Note that the result is truncated because points are held as integers.

QPOINT & QPOINT::OPERATOR+= ( CONST QPOINT & P )
Adds point p to this point and returns a reference to this point.

Example:

QPoint p(  3, 7 );
QPoint q( -1, 4 );
p += q;            // p becomes (2,11)

QPOINT & QPOINT::OPERATOR-= ( CONST QPOINT & P )
Subtracts point p from this point and returns a reference to this
point.

Example:

QPoint p(  3, 7 );
QPoint q( -1, 4 );
p -= q;            // p becomes (4,3)

QPOINT & QPOINT::OPERATOR/= ( INT C )
Divides both x and y by c, and returns a reference to this point.

Example:

QPoint p( -2, 8 );
p /= 2;            // p becomes (-1,4)

QPOINT & QPOINT::OPERATOR/= ( DOUBLE C )
This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It
behaves essentially like the above function.

Divides both x and y by c, and returns a reference to this point.

Example:

QPoint p( -3, 10 );
p /= 2.5;           // p becomes (-1,4)

Note that the result is truncated because points are held as integers.

QCOORD & QPOINT::RX ()
Returns a reference to the x coordinate of the point.

Using a reference makes it possible to directly manipulate x.

Example:

QPoint p( 1, 2 );
p.rx()--;         // p becomes (0, 2)

QCOORD & QPOINT::RY ()
Returns a reference to the y coordinate of the point.

Using a reference makes it possible to directly manipulate y.

Example:

QPoint p( 1, 2 );
p.ry()++;         // p becomes (1, 3)

VOID QPOINT::SETX ( INT X )
Sets the x coordinate of the point to x.

Example: t14/cannon.cpp.

VOID QPOINT::SETY ( INT Y )
Sets the y coordinate of the point to y.

Example: t14/cannon.cpp.

INT QPOINT::X () CONST
Returns the x coordinate of the point.

Examples:

INT QPOINT::Y () CONST
Returns the y coordinate of the point.

Examples:
