The StdPutPic procedure is QuickDraw's standard low-level routine for saving information as the definition of a picture.

PROCEDURE StdPutPic (dataPtr:\xDDPtr; byteCount:\xDDInteger);
A pointer to the collected picture data.
The size of the picture data.
The StdPutPic procedure saves as the definition of the currently open picture the drawing commands stored in the data structure pointed to by the dataPtr parameter, starting with the first byte and continuing for the next number of bytes as specified in the byteCount parameter.

The StdPutPic procedure may move or purge memory blocks in the application heap. Your application should not call this procedure at interrupt time.

Pictures are described in the chapter "Pictures," which also provides a code sample illustrating how you can supply your application with its own low-level procedure for saving pictures.
