Detailed Description

template<typename Loc, typename XIterator, typename YIterator>
class boost::gil::pixel_2d_locator_base< Loc, XIterator, YIterator >

base class for models of PixelLocatorConcept

Pixel locator is similar to a pixel iterator, but allows for 2D navigation of pixels within an image view. It has a 2D difference_type and supports random access operations like:

     difference_type offset2(2,3);

In addition, each coordinate acts as a random-access iterator that can be modified separately: "++locator.x()" or "locator.y()+=10" thereby moving the locator horizontally or vertically.

It is called a locator because it doesn't implement the complete interface of a random access iterator. For example, increment and decrement operations don't make sense (no way to specify dimension). Also 2D difference between two locators cannot be computed without knowledge of the X position within the image.

This base class provides most of the methods and typedefs needed to create a model of a locator. GIL provides two locator models as subclasses of pixel_2d_locator_base. A memory-based locator, memory_based_2d_locator and a virtual locator, virtual_2d_locator. The minimum functionality a subclass must provide is this:

 class my_locator : public pixel_2d_locator_base<my_locator, ..., ...> {  // supply the types for x-iterator and y-iterator
        typedef ... const_t;                      // read-only locator

        template <typename Deref> struct add_deref {
            typedef ... type;                     // locator that invokes the Deref dereference object upon pixel access
            static type make(const my_locator& loc, const Deref& d);

        my_locator(const my_locator& pl);

        // constructors with dynamic step in y (and x). Only valid for locators with dynamic steps
        my_locator(const my_locator& loc, coord_t y_step);
        my_locator(const my_locator& loc, coord_t x_step, coord_t y_step, bool transpose);

        bool              operator==(const my_locator& p) const;

        // return _references_ to horizontal/vertical iterators. Advancing them moves this locator
        x_iterator&       x();
        y_iterator&       y();
        x_iterator const& x() const;
        y_iterator const& y() const;

        // return the vertical distance to another locator. Some models need the horizontal distance to compute it
        y_coord_t         y_distance_to(const my_locator& loc2, x_coord_t xDiff) const;

        // return true iff incrementing an x-iterator located at the last column will position it at the first 
        // column of the next row. Some models need the image width to determine that.
        bool              is_1d_traversable(x_coord_t width) const;

Models may choose to override some of the functions in the base class with more efficient versions.
