Subject: ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of Library lcms 2.3 uploaded.
Date: Sat, 5 May 2012 11:33:07 +0200

This is a port of Library lcms 2.3 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

  The little cms library intends to be a small-footprint, speed optimized color
  management engine in open source form written in C.
  Here some features taken from the information provided by the lcms home page
    Basic features:
      Widely portable.
      Easy to use.
      Small, tight code. 
      Fast, optimized for speed.
      Handles a wide range pixel formats. 
      Implements ICC spec 4.2
      Profile to profile and multiprofile transforms.
      Supports all kind of profiles, including named color
      PostScript CSA and CRD generation

    Advanced features:
      Full multicolor support, including proof direction in more than 4 inks.
      Black preservation on CMYK->CMYK transforms.
      Gamut checking.
      Precalculated device link transforms with prelinearization step.
      Virtual Gray, RGB profiles.
      CIECAM02 appearance model.
      Can write profiles as well.
      Built-In profiles.
      Specialized abstract virtual profiles.
      Ink limiting.

  Please note that this is a library only for programmers.  If you do not
  understand all these, you do not need the port.  lcms is a CMM engine;
  it implements fast transforms between ICC (international color consortium)
  profiles.  lcms is NOT a file format or display library.  lcms knows nothing
  about how to display bitmaps (JPEG, TIFF, GIF or whatever).

  DJGPP specific changes.

  The djgpp's respository versions of snprintf and vsnprintf have been included
  and are used to compile this package, making possible to compile it even with
  stock djdev203p2.  Please note that the sources may not be compiled if LFN
  support is not available.

  All DJGPP specific stuff is stored in the /djgpp directory.

  To configure and compile the package you will have to install the following
  packages too:
  Of course, you can always download newer versions of these ports if available.
  The files stored in /current have been compiled with djdev203 and the ones
  from /beta are compiled with djdev204 beta.

  The source package is now distributed configured for both DJGPP 2.03 and
  DJGPP 2.04.  In the top srcdir there is a "_build.203" directory and a
  "_build.204" directory.  If for some reason you need to reconfigure the
  sources delete the complete contain of the _build.20[34] directory and
  run the following command:
    ..\djgpp\config.bat ./..

  The port has been compiled using stock djdev203 (patchlevel 2) and consists
  of the usual three packages that can be downloaded from and
  mirrors as (timestamp 2012-05-04):

    Library lcms 2.3 pdf format documentation:

    Library lcms 2.3 source:

  The binaries have been produced a second time using the stock version of
  djdev204 beta library.  This package is available at and
  mirrors as (timestamp 2012-05-04):
