Re: How to save pictures (handles)

He mentions that he is running MCL1.3.2 and system 6.

There is code that supports MCL1 and MCL2 in the Example folder
in the picture-file.lisp file.

The exported routines are with-pict-input-file, with-pict-output-file
and display-pict-file. If you're creating large pictures, you'll
need to increase the value of the "lsiz" resource  with ResEdit.
Otherwise there won't be enough heap space to save large pictures.
The problem disappears with MCL2.0f, since the heap can grow.
