DESCRIPTION

The gdk-pixbuf-csource utility generates C code containing images. You can use gdk-pixbuf-csource to compile images directly into programs.

You can use the following types of input with gdk-pixbuf-csource:

o A single file, to generate code for the file.

o A list of [name image] pairs, using the --build-list option, to generate code for a list of images into named variables.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported:

--build-list Enable [name image] pair parsing mode.

--decoder Provide the following macro definition to decode run-length encoded image data:

*_RUN_LENGTH_DECODE

image_buf, rle_data, size, bpp

--extern Generate extern symbols. This option is only useful with --stream or --struct. The ---extern option causes the structure created to be defined as: const [...]

-h, ---help Print brief help and exit.

--g-fatal-warnings Make warnings fatal. This option causes the program to abort when warnings occur.

--macros Generate the following macro definitions for the image:

o *_ROWSTRIDE

o *_WIDTH

o *_HEIGHT

o *_BYTES_PER_PIXEL

o *_RLE_PIXEL_DATA or *_PIXEL_DATA

--name=identifier Specify the identifier name, or prefix, for the generated variables or macros. This option is useful only if you do not specify --build-list.

--raw Disable run-length encoding for the generated pixel data. The --raw option dumps out each "(line of data)" in raw image format

--rle Enable run-length encoding for the generated pixel data. The --rle option dumps out each line of data in run-length-encoding format. This is a default setting.

--static Generate static symbols. This is a default setting. This option is only useful with --stream or --struct. The --static option causes the structure created to be defined as: static const [...]

--stream Generate a pixbuf data stream; a single string containing a serialized GdkPixdata structure in network byte order.

--struct Generate GdkPixdata structure; needs the GdkPixdata structure definition from gdk-pixdata.h.

-v, --version Print version and exit.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: To Generate Code From a File

example% gdk-pixbuf-csource input_filename

Running gdk-pixbuf-csource without any options is the same as specifying the following options:

o --stream

o --rle

o --static

Example 2: To Specify a Value for the Structure in the Generated Output

example% gdk-pixbuf-csource --name=my_struct --struct input_filename

The --name option affects the name of the structure in the generated output when you use either the --stream option or the --struct option. The --name option affects the name of the macro when you use the --macros option.

If you use either the --stream option or the --struct option, but you do not specify the --name option, then the default name of the structure in the generated output is my_pixbuf.

If you use the --macros option, but you do not specify the --name option, then the default macro names are prefixed with MY_PIXBUF_.

Example 3: To Display the Command Output as an Array of Strings

example% gdk-pixbuf-csource --name=my_struct --stream input_filename

static const guint8 my_struct[] =
{ ""
  /* Pixbuf magic (0x47646b50) */
  "GdkP"
  /* length: header (24) + pixel_data (215281) */
  " \3I\11"
  /* pixdata_type (0x2010001) */
  "\2\1 \1"
  /* rowstride (960) */
  "  \3\300"
  /* width (320) */
  "  \1@"
  /* height (240) */
  "   \360"
  /* pixel_data: */
  "(line of data)"
[...]

Example 4: To Display the Output as a GdkPixdata Structure

example% gdk-pixbuf-csource --name=my_struct --struct input_filename

const GdkPixdata my_struct = {
  0x47646b50, /* Pixbuf magic: ’GdkP’ */
  24 + 215281, /* header length + pixel_data length */
  0x2010001, /* pixdata_type */
  960, /* rowstride */
  320, /* width */
  240, /* height */
  /* pixel_data: */
  "(line of data)"
[...]

Example 5: To Display the Output as C Macros

example% gdk-pixbuf-csource --name=my_struct --macros input_filename

#define MY_STRUCT_ROWSTRIDE (960)
#define MY_STRUCT_WIDTH (320)
#define MY_STRUCT_HEIGHT (240)
#define MY_STRUCT_BYTES_PER_PIXEL (3) /* 3:RGB, 4:RGBA */
#define MY_STRUCT_RLE_PIXEL_DATA ((guint8*) 
  "(line of data)" 
[...]
