ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of library lcms2 2.14 uploaded.
From [via firstname.lastname@example.org]" <@21:1/5 to All on Fri Dec 30 00:47:11 2022
This is a port of library lcms2 2.14 to MSDOS/DJGPP.
The little cms library intends to be a small-footprint, speed optimized color
management engine in open source form written in C.
Here some features taken from the information provided by the lcms home page http://www.littlecms.com:
Easy to use.
Small, tight code.
Fast, optimized for speed.
Handles a wide range pixel formats.
Implements ICC spec 4.2
Profile to profile and multiprofile transforms.
Supports all kind of profiles, including named color
PostScript CSA and CRD generation
Full multicolor support, including proof direction in more than 4 inks.
Black preservation on CMYK->CMYK transforms.
Precalculated device link transforms with prelinearization step.
Virtual Gray, RGB profiles.
CIECAM02 appearance model.
Can write profiles as well.
Specialized abstract virtual profiles.
Please note that this is a library only for programmers. If you do not
understand all these, you do not need the port. lcms is a CMM engine;
it implements fast transforms between ICC (international color consortium)
profiles. lcms is NOT a file format or display library. lcms knows nothing
about how to display bitmaps (JPEG, TIFF, GIF or whatever).
DJGPP specific changes.
The port has been adjusted and fixed to be compiled with DJGPP 2.0X (CVS
repository code). Please note that the sources may not be compilable if
LFN support is not available.
All DJGPP specific stuff is stored in the "djgpp" directory.
The source package has been configured to be build in the "0build" directory
located under the top source directory. If for some reason you need to
reconfigure the sources delete the complete contain of the "0build" directory
and run the following command:
