Intuition supports two general approaches to creating images, lines, and
text in displays:  through Intuition library calls and through graphics
library calls.

This chapter explains the use of Intuition structures and functions for
creating display imagery.  The Intuition graphical functions provide a
high level interface to the graphics library, giving the application quick
and easy rendering capabilities.  As with any high level calls, some power
and flexibility is sacrificed in order to provide a simple interface.

For more flexibility and control over the graphics, the application can
directly call functions in the graphics library as discussed in the
"Graphics Primitives" chapter.  Intuition also has additional features for
defining custom graphic objects.  See the "BOOPSI" chapter for more
information on these objects.
