Introduction¶

This is a simple library for importing and manipulating windows bitmap files.

Currently only 24 bit uncompressed bitmaps are supported.

I developed this library for the purpose of teaching myself some image processing methods. So, the API will most likely change in the future as I add new stuff.

There is a lot of space for code optimiztion - most of the algorithms are trivially parallel - excellent use case for things like pthreads, openMP, CUDA or x86 vector instructions.
