the bitmaps I used to test with were from Windows 7 - WindowsOutlookExpress.bmp, for example,

256-color images are "8-bit" and yours is 32.

  1. Browse to C:\Windows\System32\migwiz\PostMigRes\Web\base_images
  2. Right-click WindowsOutlookExpress.bmp
  3. Click Properties
  4. Select Details tab
  5. Observe Bit depth is 32

add: all are visible using the respective platforms' image viewer(s).

This is not an indicative test of compatibility. Euphoria's bitmap routines are extremely limited.


So they are. Isn't that just another thing that detracts from Euphoria's popularity? Not that Eu should support *any* kind of images, that's not my point. Anyone interested in working with images is very unlikely to be doing so in a text mode, I suspect. Therefore, since the Eu user will probably be using either wxWindows, EuGTK, or something similar, those libraries already have a lot of support for images built in. Euphoria itself needs none at all.
