I am writing a program in my Apple //gs and it is a paint program using the GR and plot function. I have one question to ask. I am storing the plotted x and y coordinate in set of arrays and I want when the user finalize it..it converts the entire image in screen either into an image binary file that can be opened or into a set of loops of read, data and poking and peeking to display the image back. Can someone help me in this?
I know someone says why bother with that..just use a paint program...well I could..but I do not know of a good basic programming book that I can reference into to show me how to open an image file or sprite file in basic and what format the image is.
Thanks in advance.
