useful for testing.

Files in the "g" directory I consider to be "good": 
Your program should definitely support them if it claims to support BMP.

Files in the "q" directory I consider to be "questionable":
These may unusual or obsolete, or technically violate the documentation in some
way, or I may be unsure about their validity.

Files in the "b" directory I consider to be "bad":
These are clearly invalid or unreasonable. Make sure your program doesn't crash
when reading them.

The individual BMP files are described in the html/bmpsuite.html file.

The generation utility is written in C, and is contained in the bmpsuite.c
file, and the files in the 'data' subdirectory. In a Unix-like environment,
type "make bmpsuite" to build the program, or just "make" to build and run it.
Run "make check" to verify that it writes the BMP files correctly.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
