Using the data storage type defined on this page for raster graphics images, draw a line given 2 points with the Bresenham’s line algorithm.

void Line( const float x1, const float y1, const float x2, const float y2, const Color& color )
{
// Bresenham's line algorithm
const bool steep = (fabs(y2 - y1) > fabs(x2 - x1));
if(steep)
{
std::swap(x1, y1);
std::swap(x2, y2);
}
if(x1 > x2)
{
std::swap(x1, x2);
std::swap(y1, y2);
}
const float dx = x2 - x1;
const float dy = fabs(y2 - y1);
float error = dx / 2.0f;
const int ystep = (y1 < y2) ? 1 : -1;
int y = (int)y1;
const int maxX = (int)x2;
for(int x=(int)x1; x<maxX; x++)
{
if(steep)
{
SetPixel(y,x, color);
}
else
{
SetPixel(x,y, color);
}
error -= dy;
if(error < 0)
{
y += ystep;
error += dx;
}
}
}
