approx_chain_simple — Approximate a contour by arcs and lines.
approx_chain_simple is obsolete and is only provided for reasons of backward compatibility.
The contour of a curve is approximated by a sequence of lines and arcs.
The result of the procedure is returned separately as arcs and lines. If one is interested in the sequence of the segments the individual resulting elements can be read successively from the resulting tuples. The sequence can be taken from the return parameter order (0: next element is next line segment, 1: next element is next arc segment).
The operator approx_chain_simple behaves similarly as approx_chain except that in the case of approx_chain_simple the missing parameters are internally allocated as follows: MinWidthCoord = 1.0, MaxWidthCoord = 3.0, ThreshStart = 0.5, ThreshEnd = 0.9, ThreshStep = 0.3, MinWidthSmooth = 1.0, MaxWidthSmooth = 3.0, MinWidthCurve = 2, MaxWidthCurve = 9, Weight1 = 1.0, Weight2 = 1.0, Weight3 = 1.0.
Row of the contour.

Column of the contour.
Default value: 32
Row of the center of an arc.

Angle of an arc.
Row of the starting point of an arc.
Column of the starting point of an arc.
Row of the starting point of a line segment.
Column of the starting point of a line segment.
Row of the ending point of a line segment.
Column of the ending point of a line segment.
Sequence of line (value 0) and arc segments (value 1).

The operator approx_chain_simple returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if the parameters are correct. Otherwise an exception is raised.
