Lua-GD, the gd bindings for the Lua Programming Language (c) 2004-13 Alexandre Erwin Ittner <firstname.lastname@example.org> + Introduction "gd" is a C graphics library created by Thomas Boutell that allows your code to quickly draw complete images with lines, polygons, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from other images, flood fills, read in or write out images in the PNG, JPEG or GIF format. This is particularly useful in World Wide Web applications, where PNG and JPEG are two of the formats accepted for inline images by most browsers. gd does not provide for every possible desirable graphics operation. It is not necessary or desirable for gd to become a kitchen-sink graphics package, but it does include most frequently requested features, including both truecolor and palette images, resampling (smooth resizing of truecolor images) and so forth. You can get more information about gd from it's homepage. Lua-GD is a "binding": a library that exports gd functions to the Lua Programming Language, allowing you to use gd from Lua. The API was NOT literally exported, but changed in a way that make it familiar to Lua users. Lua-GD is a programming library, not a paint program. If you are looking for that or are not familiar to the Lua Programming Language, you are in the wrong place. + Documentation See doc/index.html for installation instructions and API documentation. + License Lua-GD is copyrighted free software, distributed under the MIT license (the same used by Lua 5.1) and it can be used at no cost for both academic and commercial purpouses.
