I happened to run across these sections today which are listed at the
bottom of the page:
Some inconsistencies therein and I suggest the following changes in
where and how patterns are listed in the subsections :
brick - Move to Discontinuous_Patterns
crackle - (note "solid keyword makes discontinuous")
density_file - Move to Special_Patterns
facets - Move to Discontinuous_Patterns
hexagon - Remove. Already listed in Discontinuous_Patterns
pavement - Move to Discontinuous_Patterns
pigment_pattern - Move to Special_Patterns
potential - Add as not today listed and new to 3.7.1
square - Remove. Already listed in Discontinuous_Patterns
tiling - Move to Discontinuous_Patterns
(Perhaps call these Discrete-Region Patterns?)
crackle (note "when used with solid keyword")
pavement - Move here from General
tiling - Move here from General
Add a note something like:
"Parts of the pavement and tiling patterns are discontinuous or clamped
while other parts ramp."
facets - Move here from general
Need to strike the general sentence:
"As such, these patterns are suitable for object normals only."
"The facets pattern can only be used in a normal statement."
density_file - Move here from General
pigment_pattern - Move here from General
