libbeebimage

A cross-platform C & C++ library for reading graphics files originally created on BBC Micro or Master computers.

The most common ways of storing images on the BBC were; as a dump of the graphics memory, in a run-length encoded format loaded by a program called LdPic, or in a different (optionally) run-length encoded format understood by a program called ScrLoad.

However, due to the unusual way that the BBC's graphics memory was mapped to the screen (in blocks of eight bytes) it is not straight-forward to view these formats on a PC with standard tools.

This library is able to read BBC graphics files saved in LdPic, ScrLoad or memory dump format in Modes 0, 1, 2, 4 and 5.

Build & Install

You'll need CMake in your PATH and a C++ compiler.

First, open a shell in the root of the project and then run the following to generate the build files:

Linux

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
make
sudo make install

Windows

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

The command to build with under Windows will then depend on your C++ compiler.
