Re: [Gimp-developer] Sample points

I wondered about that at the time, but the Path technique has several advantages over the sample points:

 * you are not limited to 4 points
 * you can keep points and target layer in synch using the links
 * you have sub-pixel accuracy

It would be straightforward to add that functionality, though.  All that
would be needed is to add a function gimp_image_get_sample_points_invoker()
to app/pdb/image-cmds.c, which would call gimp_image_get_sample_points(),
and then glue it to a procedure called gimp-image-get-sample-points.  That
would be a good exercise for a developer who wants to gain familiarity with
the pdb.  (It would also be necessary to add documentation, of course.)

Is is possible to access the position of the sample points from within a
script? I can't find any reference to them in the Procedure browser.

No way AFAIK. Scripts that require image coordinates usually ask the user
to draw a path and use the path anchor coordinates.
