NAME

       AllocDBufInfo -- Allocate structure for multi-buffered animation (V39)

SYNOPSIS

       AllocDBufInfo(vp)
a0
struct DBufInfo * AllocDBufInfo(struct ViewPort *)

FUNCTION

	Allocates a structure which is used by the ChangeVPBitMap()
routine.

INPUTS

       vp  =  A pointer to a ViewPort structure.

BUGS

NOTES

	Returns 0 if there is no memory available or if the display mode
of the viewport does not support double-buffering.
The only fields of the DBufInfo structure which can be used by application
programs are the dbi_SafeMessage, dbi_DispMessage, dbi_UserData1 and
dbi_UserData2 fields.
dbi_SafeMessage and dbi_DispMessage are standard exec message structures
which may be used for synchronizing your animation with the screen update.
dbi_SafeMessage is a message which is replied to when it is safe to write to
the old BitMap (the one which was installed when you called ChangeVPBitMap).
dbi_DispMessage is replied to when it is safe to call ChangeVPBitMap again
and be certain that the new frame has been seen at least once.
The dbi_UserData1 and dbi_UserData2 fields, which are stored after each
message, are for your application to stuff any data into that it may need
to examine when looking at the reply coming into the ReplyPort for either
of the embedded Message structures.
DBufInfo structures MUST be allocated with this function. The size of
the structure will grow in future releases.
The following fragment shows proper double buffering synchronization:
int SafeToChange=TRUE, SafeToWrite=TRUE, CurBuffer=1;
struct MsgPort *ports[2]; /* reply ports for DispMessage and SafeMessage
*/
struct BitMap *BmPtrs[2];
struct DBufInfo *myDBI;
... allocate bitmap pointers, DBufInfo, set up viewports, etc.
myDBI->dbi_SafeMessage.mn_ReplyPort=ports[0];
myDBI->dbi_DispMessage.mn_ReplyPort=ports[1];
while (! done)
{
if (! SafeToWrite)
while(! GetMsg(ports[0])) Wait(1l<<(ports[0]->mp_SigBit));
SafeToWrite=TRUE;
... render to bitmap # CurBuffer.
if (! SafeToChange)
while(! GetMsg(ports[1])) Wait(1l<<(ports[1]->mp_SigBit));
SafeToChange=TRUE;
WaitBlit(); /* be sure rendering has finished */
ChangeVPBitMap(vp,BmPtrs[CurBuffer],myDBI);
SafeToChange=FALSE;
SafeToWrite=FALSE;
CurBuffer ^=1; /* toggle current buffer */
}
if (! SafeToChange) /* cleanup pending messages */
while(! GetMsg(ports[1])) Wait(1l<<(ports[1]->mp_SigBit));
if (! SafeToWrite) /* cleanup */
while(! GetMsg(ports[0])) Wait(1l<<(ports[0]->mp_SigBit));
