Question Is there a reliable BitMap ( BMP ) program out there for embedded Linux?


Hi there,

I have this embedded Debian Linux box.

I am looking for a reliable and fast command-line program that can accept two parameters :

(1) A BMP image
(2) A smaller BMP image
(3) Coordinates of where on (1) to place (2)

and then superimpose (2) on top of (1) given the coordinates

The output will be another BMP image ( not PNG ).

I was wondering if there is a command-line tool that can run very fast on an embedded Linux system ( x86 ) ?
An open-source code ( C, Perl, etc) will be even better

Thanks!
IS

The imagemagick suite can do that, and a lot more, with almost any imaginable format that you might dream of, including bmp of course.

The concrete tool to use would be composite:

Open source.

The spam is often defined as "unsolicited propaganda", which is what this post is, since it doesn't even relate to this thread at all.
