NexgenIPL - Image Library
I have spent the last week doing research into graphic file formats. I was
looking around for a decent library to load .png files, but libpng was not
easy enough to use, included too much baggage and didn't give me what I
needed. I was considering the possibility of writing a de-compressor from
scratch when I came across this:
It worked perfectly! It opened up test.bmp and saved a copy of it into
output.png. Super-easy and super powerful. I think this amazing resource
deserves to be shared with the entire development community.
The zip file viewer built into the Developer Toolbox made use
of the zlib library, as well as the zlibdll source additions.
