Pairs are also used to store intervals, which represent a range of numbers
from the minimum (the
car) to the maximum (the
Intervals are used to store the X- and Y- extents of printable objects.
For X extents, the
car is the left hand X coordinate, and the
cdr is the right hand X coordinate. For Y extents, the
is the bottom coordinate, and the
cdr is the top coordinate.
Procedures for working with intervals are found in scm/lily-library.scm. These procedures should be used when possible to ensure consistency of code.
