{{task|Raster graphics operations}}[[Category:Graphics algorithms]] Implement a [[wp:flood fill|flood fill]].

A flood fill is a way of filling an area using ''color banks'' to define the contained area or a ''target color'' which "determines" the area (the ''valley'' that can be flooded; Wikipedia uses the term ''target color''). It works almost like a water flooding from a point towards the banks (or: inside the valley): if there's a hole in the banks, the flood is not contained and all the image (or all the "connected valleys") get filled.

To accomplish the task, you need to implement just one of the possible algorithms (examples are on [[wp:flood fill|Wikipedia]]). Variations on the ''theme'' are allowed (e.g. adding a tolerance parameter or argument for color-matching of the ''banks'' or ''target'' color).

[[Image:Unfilledcirc.png|128px|thumb|right]] '''Testing''': the basic algorithm is not suitable for ''truecolor'' images; a possible test image is the one shown on the right box; you can try to fill the white area, or the black inner circle.

The procedure has the following parameters. ''Picture'' is the image to change. ''From'' is the point to start at. ''Fill'' is the color to fill with. ''Replace'' is the color to replace. ''Distance'' defines the range of color around ''Replace'' to replace as well. The distance is defined as a maximum of the differences of stimuli. The following code snippet reads the test file, fills the area between two circles red, and writes the result:

declare
File : File_Type;
begin
Open (File, In_File, "Unfilledcirc.ppm");
declare
Picture : Image := Get_PPM (File);
begin
Close (File);
Flood_Fill
(  Picture  => Picture,
From     => (122, 30),
Fill     => (255,0,0),
Replace  => White
);
Create (File, Out_File, "Filledcirc.ppm");
Put_PPM (File, Picture);
Close (File);
end;
end;

## AutoHotkey

• x, y are the initial coords (relative to screen unless the relative parameter is true).
• target is the BGR hex color code to replace.
• replacement is the BGR hex color code to replace target with.
• mode is 1 for a four-way fill, 2 for a five-way fill (hits each pixel doubly because each calls itself), 3 for an eight-way fill, or 4 for an eight-way fill that hits each pixel doubly because it calls itself double (default 1).
• key is a key to press to exit if the fill takes too long.

*
* This is an implementation of the recursive algorithm. For the sake of
* simplicity, instead of reading files as JPEG, PNG, etc., the program
* read and write Portable Bit Map (PBM) files in plain text format.
* Portable Bit Map files can also be read and written with GNU GIMP.
*
* The program is just an example, so the image size is limited to 2048x2048,
* the image can only be black and white, there is no run-time validation.
*
* Data is read from a standard input stream, the results are written to the
* standard output file.
*
* In order for this program to work properly it is necessary to allocate
* enough memory for the program stack. For example, in Microsoft Visual Studio,
* the option /stack:134217728 declares a 128MB stack instead of the default
* size of 1MB.

The '''pixelcount''' could be used to know the area of the filled region. The ''internal'' parameter tolerance can be tuned to cope with antialiasing, bringing "sharper" resuts.

/** For any given pixel x,y, this algorithm first fills a contiguous
horizontal line segment of pixels containing that pixel, then
recursively scans the two adjacent rows over the same horizontal
interval. Let this be invocation 0, and the immediate recursive
invocations be 1, 2, 3, ..., # be pixels of the wrong color, and
* be where each scan starts; the fill ordering is as follows:

--------------##########-------
-...1111111111*11####*33333...-
###########000*000000000000...-
-...2222222222*22222##*4444...-

Each invocation returns the x coordinate of the rightmost pixel it filled,
or x0 if none were.

Since it is recursive, this algorithm is unsuitable for large images
with small stacks.

[[File:Filledcirc-E.png|128px|thumb|right|Filled sample image]]Note that this does not make any attempt to smoothly fill 'banks' or have a tolerance; it matches exact colors only. This will fill the example image with red inside green, and there will be black/white fringes:

## ERRE

In "PC.LIB" library there is a FILL procedure that do the job, but the example program implements the algorithm in ERRE language using an iterative method. This program is taken from the distribution disk and works in 320x200 graphics.

## Java

Input is the image, the starting node (x, y), the target color we want to fill, and the replacement color that will replace the target color. It implements a 4-way flood fill algorithm. For large images, the performance can be improved by drawing the scanlines instead of setting each pixel to the replacement color, or by working directly on the databuffer.

import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Point;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.util.Deque;

public class FloodFill {
public void floodFill(BufferedImage image, Point node, Color targetColor, Color replacementColor) {
int width = image.getWidth();
int height = image.getHeight();
int target = targetColor.getRGB();
int replacement = replacementColor.getRGB();
if (target != replacement) {
do {
int x = node.x;
int y = node.y;
while (x > 0 && image.getRGB(x - 1, y) == target) {
x--;
}
boolean spanUp = false;
boolean spanDown = false;
while (x < width && image.getRGB(x, y) == target) {
image.setRGB(x, y, replacement);
if (!spanUp && y > 0 && image.getRGB(x, y - 1) == target) {
spanUp = true;
} else if (spanUp && y > 0 && image.getRGB(x, y - 1) != target) {
spanUp = false;
}
if (!spanDown && y < height - 1 && image.getRGB(x, y + 1) == target) {
spanDown = true;
} else if (spanDown && y < height - 1 && image.getRGB(x, y + 1) != target) {
spanDown = false;
}
x++;
}
} while ((node = queue.pollFirst()) != null);
}
}
}

And here is an example of how to replace the white color with red from the sample image (with starting node (50, 50)):

import java.io.IOException;
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Point;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.File;
import javax.imageio.ImageIO;

public class Test {
public Test() throws IOException {
new FloodFill().floodFill(image, new Point(50, 50), Color.WHITE, Color.RED);
ImageIO.write(image, "png", new File("output.png"));
}

public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
new Test();
}
}

## Lingo

Lingo has built-in flood fill for image objects, so a custom implementation would be pointless:

img.floodFill(x, y, rgb(r,g,b))

RegionBinarize[img, Image[SparseArray[pos -> 1, ImageDimensions[img]]], tol];
floodFill[img_Image, pos_List, tol_Real, color_List] :=
ImageCompose[
SetAlphaChannel[Image[ConstantArray[color, ImageDimensions[img]]],
]
]

{{out}} Import the test image and fill the region containing the pixel at coordinate 100,100 with red (RGB 100%,0%,0%) using a tolerance of 1%

floodFill[Import["http://rosettacode.org/mw/images/0/0f/Unfilledcirc.png"], {100, 100}, 0.01, {1, 0, 0}]

## Perl

The fill of the Perl package Image::Imlib2 is a flood fill (so the documentatin of Image::Imlib2 says). The target colour is the one of the starting point pixel; the color set with set_color is the fill colour.

#! /usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use Image::Imlib2;

\$img->set_color(0, 255, 0, 255);
\$img->fill(100,100);
\$img->save("filledcirc.jpg");
exit 0;

use strict;
use Image::Imlib2;

sub colordistance
{
my ( \$c1, \$c2 ) = @_;

my ( \$r1, \$g1, \$b1 ) = @\$c1;
my ( \$r2, \$g2, \$b2 ) = @\$c2;
return sqrt(( (\$r1-\$r2)**2 + (\$g1-\$g2)**2 + (\$b1-\$b2)**2 ))/(255.0*sqrt(3.0));
}

sub floodfill
{
my ( \$img, \$x, \$y, \$r, \$g, \$b ) = @_;
my \$distparameter = 0.2;

my %visited = ();
my @queue = ();

my @tcol = ( \$r, \$g, \$b );
my @col = \$img->query_pixel(\$x, \$y);
if ( colordistance(\@tcol, \@col) > \$distparameter ) { return; }
push @queue, [\$x, \$y];
while ( @queue ) {
my \$pointref = shift(@queue);
( \$x, \$y ) = @\$pointref;
if ( (\$x < 0) || (\$y < 0) || ( \$x >= \$img->width ) || ( \$y >= \$img->height ) ) { next; }
if ( ! exists(\$visited{"\$x,\$y"}) ) {
@col = \$img->query_pixel(\$x, \$y);
if ( colordistance(\@tcol, \@col) <= \$distparameter ) {
\$img->draw_point(\$x, \$y);
\$visited{"\$x,\$y"} = 1;
push @queue, [\$x+1, \$y];
push @queue, [\$x-1, \$y];
push @queue, [\$x, \$y+1];
push @queue, [\$x, \$y-1];
}
}
}
}

# usage example
\$img->set_color(0,255,0,255);
floodfill(\$img, 100,100, 0, 0, 0);
\$img->save("filledcirc1.jpg");
exit 0;

This fills better than the Image::Imlib2 fill function the inner circle, since because of JPG compression and thanks to the \$distparameter, it "sees" as black also pixel that are no more exactly black.

## PicoLisp

Using the format of [[Bitmap#PicoLisp|Bitmap]], a minimal recursive solution:

(de ppmFloodFill (Ppm X Y Color)
(let Target (get Ppm Y X)
(recur (X Y)
(when (= Target (get Ppm Y X))
(set (nth Ppm Y X) Color)
(recurse (dec X) Y)
(recurse (inc X) Y)
(recurse X (dec Y))
(recurse X (inc Y)) ) ) )
Ppm )

Test using 'ppmRead' from [[Bitmap/Read a PPM file#PicoLisp]] and 'ppmWrite' from [[Bitmap/Write a PPM file#PicoLisp]], filling the white area with red:

(ppmWrite
(ppmFloodFill (ppmRead "Unfilledcirc.ppm") 192 128 (255 0 0))
"Filledcirc.ppm" )

## PL/I

if pixel_color = area_color then call fill (x, y+1, fill_color);

end fill;

The following PL/I statements change the color of the white area of the sample image to red, and the central orb to green. /* Fill the white area of the suggested image with red color. */ area_color = (24)'1'b; call fill (125, 25, '000000000000000011111111'b );

/* Naive Rust implementation of RosettaCode's Bitmap/Flood fill excercise.

* For the sake of simplicity this code reads PPM files (format specification can be found here: http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc/ppm.html ).

* Also this program expects the input file to be in the same directory as the executable and named
* "input.ppm" and outputs a file in the same directory under the name "output.ppm".

## Standard ML

This implementation is imperative, updating the pixels of the image as it goes. Flood fill is somewhat difficult to make efficient if we were to use purely functional data structures instead.

(* For simplicity, we're going to fill black-and-white images. Nothing
* fundamental would change if we used more colors. *)
datatype color = Black | White
(* Represent an image as a 2D mutable array of pixels, since flood-fill
* is naturally an imperative algorithm. *)
type image = color array array

(* Helper functions to construct images for testing. Map 0 -> White
* and 1 -> Black so we can write images concisely as lists. *)
fun intToColor 0 = White
| intToColor _ = Black

fun listToImage (LL : int list list) : image =
Array.tabulate(List.length LL,
fn i => Array.tabulate (List.length (hd LL),
fn j => intToColor(List.nth(List.nth(LL,i),j))))

(* Is the given pixel within the image ? *)
fun inBounds (img : image) ((x,y) : int * int) : bool =
x >= 0 andalso y >= 0 andalso y < Array.length img
andalso x < Array.length (Array.sub(img, y))

(* Return an option containing the neighbors we should explore next, if any.*)
fun neighbors (img : image) (c : color) ((x,y) : int * int) : (int * int) list option =
if inBounds img (x,y) andalso Array.sub(Array.sub(img,y),x) <> c
then SOME [(x-1,y),(x+1,y),(x,y-1),(x,y+1)]
else NONE

(* Update the given pixel of the image. *)
fun setPixel (img : image) ((x,y) : int * int) (c : color) : unit =
Array.update (Array.sub(img,y),x,c)

(* Recursive fill around the given point using the given color. *)
fun fill (img : image) (c : color) ((x,y) : int * int) : unit =
case neighbors img c (x,y) of
SOME xys => (setPixel img (x,y) c; List.app (fill img c) xys)
| NONE => ()

val test = listToImage
