To improve performance of graphics output, most graphics devices provide some form of buffering. By default, Scheme's graphics procedures flush this buffer after every drawing operation. The procedures in this section allow the user to control the flushing of the output buffer.
Enables buffering for graphics-device. In other words, after this procedure is called, graphics operations are permitted to buffer their drawing requests. This usually means that the drawing is delayed until the buffer is flushed explicitly by the user, or until it fills up and is flushed by the system.
Disables buffering for graphics-device. By default, all graphics devices are initialized with buffering disabled. After this procedure is called, all drawing operations perform their output immediately, before returning.
graphics-disable-bufferingflushes the output buffer if necessary.
