About Cairo's documentation

Cairo is not thoroughly documented in the CPAN module. To understand Cairo's commands it is necessary to refer to the C language documentation at The links on the commands illustrated on this page go to the Cairo C manual.

The Perl interface is similar to the C interface. Function arguments go in the same order. The function names are also similar to the C ones.
