ABWorld

This API defines a global variable "ABWorld" with functionality as follows.
 

 ABWorld;       // instance of class ABWorldClass - basic functionality for this API
  
  
 ABWorld.webgl = false;   
 
   // define graphics mode (2D or 3D)
   // 2D is default
   // for 3D set this to true   

  
 ABWorld.init ( color );             
  
   // create canvas with some background color	
   // this defines a setup() function and calls P5's createCanvas() function
  
	
 ABWorld.p5canvas;	
	
   // The object returned by P5's createCanvas() function


 ABWorld.canvas;		
	
   // The object corresponding to p5canvas.canvas 
				

Do not define a setup() function

P5 uses global functions setup() and draw().
This API provides AB support. It defines its own setup() function internally to create the canvas.
