Clears the current path and starts a new path.
In the example below, a cpdf_newpath() is used to create a clipping path in the shape of a rectangle and the clipping path cleared with a second call to cpdf_newpath() so shapes can be drawn.
// start a PDF document $cpdf = cpdf_open(0, "test.pdf"); // create a 600x400 page cpdf_page_init($cpdf, 1, 0, 600, 400, 1); // set gray stroke amount cpdf_setgray_stroke($cpdf, 0.0); // set line width cpdf_setlinewidth($cpdf, 0.2); // save current document state cpdf_save($cpdf); // create a rectangular clipping path cpdf_newpath($cpdf); cpdf_rect($cpdf, 50,50, 150, 90); cpdf_clip($cpdf); cpdf_newpath($cpdf); // draw an arc cpdf_arc($cpdf, 100, 100, 50, 30, 220, 0); // close the clipping path and fill resulting shape cpdf_closepath($cpdf); cpdf_fill_Stroke($cpdf); // comment out next line to see clipping path // also affect this shape cpdf_restore($cpdf); cpdf_rect($cpdf, 30,30, 100, 30); cpdf_stroke($cpdf); // close and write document cpdf_finalize($cpdf); cpdf_close($cpdf);
