Java interface to the AST CmpFrame class - compound Frame. A CmpFrame is a compound Frame which allows two component Frames (of any class) to be merged together to form a more complex Frame. The axes of the two component Frames then appear together in the resulting CmpFrame (those of the first Frame, followed by those of the second Frame).

Since a CmpFrame is itself a Frame, it can be used as a component in forming further CmpFrames. Frames of arbitrary complexity may be built from simple individual Frames in this way.

Also since a Frame is a Mapping, a CmpFrame can also be used as a Mapping. Normally, a CmpFrame is simply equivalent to a UnitMap, but if either of the component Frames within a CmpFrame is a Region (a sub-class of Frame), then the CmpFrame will use the Region as a Mapping when transforming values for axes described by the Region. Thus input axis values corresponding to positions which are outside the Region will result in bad output axis values.

Constructor Detail


public CmpFrame(Frame frame1,
                Frame frame2)
Create a CmpFrame.

frame1 - Pointer to the first component Frame.
frame2 - Pointer to the second component Frame.
AstException - if an error occurred in the AST library
Method Detail


public Frame[] decompose()
Gets the component Frames from this CmpFrame. This method returns pointers to two Frames which, when applied in parallel, are equivalent to this CmpFrame.

a two-element array giving the component Frames
AstException - if an error occurs in the AST library
