Re: Image Processing in CLIM

Re: hacking the color map

Not all platforms with color displays have color maps.  I believe the design
was intended to be that the standard CLIM entry points provide 
platform-independent graphics with the functionality that all platforms can
support, and if you need to do something like control the color map or
display 24-bit-color images, that's platform-dependent code that must use
platform-specific interfaces, and will work on the subset of platforms that
support those interfaces.  I guess the problem with this is that these
platform-specific interfaces didn't get documented by the vendors of the
individual platform-specific versions of CLIM, and perhaps don't even exist
in some cases where they could.
