#fill(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Closes and fills the current path. See Graphics::Color for color details.

If the option :fill_rule => :even_odd is specified, Prawn will use the even-odd rule to fill the path. Otherwise, the nonzero winding number rule will be used. See the PDF reference, “Graphics -> Path Construction and Painting -> Clipping Path Operators” for details on the difference.
