ZX Spectrum Scanline Flood Fill

A flood fill is a graphical algorithm to colour an area of screen bounded by pixels of another colour. The scanline technique is a fast, stack-efficient flood fill which can be implemented in 99 bytes of Z80, as demonstrated below:
; scanline fill by John Metcalf
; call with d=x-coord, e=y-coord

; set end marker

fill:
  ld l,255
  push hl

; calculate bit position of pixel

nextrun:
  ld a,d
  and 7
  inc a
  ld b,a
  ld a,1
bitpos:
  rrca
  djnz bitpos
  ld c,b
  ld b,a

; move left until hitting a set pixel or the screen edge

seekleft:
  ld a,d
  or a
  jr z,goright
  dec d
  rlc b
  call scrpos
  jr nz,seekleft

; move right until hitting a set pixel or the screen edge,
; setting pixels as we go. Check rows above and below and
; save their coordinates to fill later if necessary

seekright:  
  rrc b
  inc d
  jr z,rightedge
goright:
  call scrpos
  jr z,rightedge
  ld (hl),a
  inc e
  call checkadj
  dec e
  dec e
  call checkadj
  inc e
  jr seekright

; check to see if there's another row waiting to be filled

rightedge:
  pop de
  ld a,e
  inc a
  jr nz,nextrun
  ret  

; calculate the pixel address and whether or not it's set

scrpos:
  ld a,e
  and 248
  rra
  scf
  rra
  rra
  ld l,a
  xor e
  and 248
  xor e
  ld h,a
  ld a,l
  xor d
  and 7
  xor d
  rrca
  rrca
  rrca
  ld l,a
  ld a,b
  or (hl)
  cp (hl)
  ret

; check and save the coordinates of an adjacent row

checkadj:
  sla c
  ld a,e
  cp 192
  ret nc
  call scrpos+1
  ret z
  inc c
  bit 2,c
  ret nz
  pop hl
  push de
  jp (hl)
