colors

Magick.colors { |color| block } -> Magick
Magick.colors -> array

Description

Lists the named colors. If the optional block is present, calls the block once for each color, passing a Magick::Color object. Otherwise, returns an array of Magick::Color objects, one for each color.

The Magick::Color class is a Struct class with the following attributes:

Magick::Color attributes
Attribute Value
name The color name. For example, "red".
compliance A ComplianceType value such as X11Compliance.
color A Pixel object containing the RGB values.

Returns

If no block is associated with the call, returns an array of Magick::Color objects.

Example

This is a small sample of colors.miff, the complete image created by the example program.

fonts

Magick.fonts { |font| block } -> Magick
Magick.fonts -> array

Description

Lists the fonts that ImageMagick knows about. If the optional block is present, calls the block once for each font, passing a Magick::Font object. Otherwise, returns an array of Magick::Font objects, one for each font.

The Magick::Font class is a Struct class with the following attributes:

Magick::Font attributes
Attribute Value
name The font name. For example, "Palatino-Roman".
description The font description. For example, "Palatino Roman".
family The font family. For example, "Palatino", "Helvetica", or "Courier".
style A StyleType value such as NormalStyle.
stretch A StretchType value such as NormalStretch.
weight The font weight, one of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, or 900.
encoding The font encoding, such as "AppleRoman". May be nil.
foundry The font foundry. "URW", for example. May be nil.
format If the font is a Type1 font, has the value "type1", otherwise nil.

Returns

If no block is associated with the call, returns an array of Magick::Font objects.

formats

Magick.formats { |f,v| block } -> Magick
Magick.formats -> hash

Description

Describes the image formats supported by ImageMagick. If the optional block is present, calls the block once for each image format. The first argument, f, is the format name. The second argument, v, is the properties string described below.

Returns

A hash of image formats and their properties. Each key in the returned hash is the name of a supported image format. Each value is a string in the form "BRWA". The details are in this table:
Format property codes
Code Definition
B is "*" if the format has native blob support, and "-" otherwise.
R is "r" if ImageMagick can read the format, and "-" otherwise.
W is "w" if ImageMagick can write the format, and "-" otherwise.
A is "+" if the format supports multi-image files, and "-" otherwise.

Example

p Magick.formats »
   {"TIF"=>"*rw+",
   "H"=>"*rw-",
   "MNG"=>"*rw+",
   "NULL"=>"*rw-",
   ...
   "G"=>"*rw+",
   "GIF"=>"*rw+",
   "PDB"=>"*rw+"}

Note

ImageMagick depends on external programs for some formats. Depending on how ImageMagick was installed on your system, some formats may not be available. If you have questions, ask your system administrator.

limit_resource

Magick.limit_resource(resource_type [, limit]) -> old_limit

Description

Sets a limit to the amount of a resource, or gets the current limit for the resource. When the limit is reached, ImageMagick will fail in some fashion or take compensating actions if possible. The default limits vary according to the platform. See the ImageMagick documentation for the -limit option for more information.

Arguments

This method may be called with one or two arguments. The first argument identifies the resource. If specified, the second argument is the limit.
resource_type
One of the symbols :area, :disk, :file, :map, :memory, or :time. You may use a string instead of a symbol.
limit
If present, the limit for the resource. This argument is always an integer number. If the resource_type is :file, the limit is the number of open files. If :memory or :map, the limit is measured megabytes. If :disk, the limit is measured in gigabytes. If the resource_type is :area the limit is the maximum width * height of an image in pixels that can reside in pixel cache memory. If :time, the limit is measured in seconds. If this argument is omitted the limit is not changed.

Returns

The current resource limit. If a new limit is specified this is the limit before the change.

Notes

This method supercedes set_cache_threshold.

Setting the :time limit resets the elapsed time to zero in the pixel cache. Call it before any operation that you need to set a time limit on.

set_log_event_mask

Magick.set_log_event_mask(event_list)

Description

Specify which events to log.

Argument

A string composed of one or more of the following event types. If more than one event type is specified, separate the event types with commas.

All, Annotate, Blob, Cache, Coder, Configure, Deprecate, Draw, Exception, Locale, Module, None, Resource, Trace, Transform, User, Wand, X11

Example

Magick.set_log_event_mask("Module,Coder")
