paintlib - Image file decoding

Paintlib is a C++ class library for image file decoding and manipulation. It currently supports the TGA, TIFF, JPEG/JFIF, Windows BMP, and Mac PICT formats. Data source and destination formats can be tailored as nessesary. Additionally, format-independent but fast bitmap manipulation classes are available.

Although there are a few Windows-specific functions, the library is portable. Makefiles are included for Microsoft Visual C++ (Win32) and GNU C++ (DOS and SunOS). Prerequisite is a C++-compiler with standard C libraries and support for exception handling. The library also requires support for 32-bit memory addressing.
