imlib2 Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies imlib2-1.7.1.tar.bz2 contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
README
Imlib2 1.7.1

This is the Imlib 2 library - a library that does image file loading and
saving as well as rendering, manipulation, arbitrary polygon support, etc.

It does ALL of these operations FAST. Imlib2 also tries to be highly
intelligent about doing them, so writing naive programs can be done
easily, without sacrificing speed.

This is a complete rewrite over the Imlib 1.x series. The architecture is
more modular, simple, and flexible. See index.html in the doc/ directory
for more information.

Imlib2 requires several libraries to be already installed. These are:

libjpeg          http://www.ijg.org/
libpng           http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/libpng.html
freetype 2.1.x   http://www.freetype.org/

For examples of this library in use, seek:

Eterm            http://www.eterm.org/ (CVS version only, currently)
feh              http://www.linuxbrit.co.uk/feh.html
geist            http://www.linuxbrit.co.uk/geist.html

You will find rpm packages in your system /usr/src/redhat/* dirs (note you may
not need to use sudo or root if you have your own ~/.rpmrc. see rpm documents
for more details)

DEB: To build deb packages:

  cd imlib2-1.7.1
  dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot

  rm -rf imlib2-1.7.1

You will find all the debian source, binary etc. packages put in the directory
where you first untarred the source tarball.
