Image won't display under OS X

 [1/4] from: kpeters:otaksoft at: 15-Nov-2007 13:07


I am trying to run a script under OS X that runs fine under Win32 which displays an image from an embedded binary string (originating from a GIF). In all but one aspect the script runs fine under OS X - the embedded image doesn't display.... Does anyone know why this might be? Thanks! Kai

Hello, maybe the problem, regarding binary files, could be realted to the so called big-endian and "little-endian". It is a problem related to the most significative bit in a byte. On Nov 15, 2007 10:07 PM, Kai Peters <kpeters-otaksoft.com> wrote:

Actually, it was false alarm. The source file with the embedded image did not copy over to my Mac due to some rights issue (that still needs to be investigated) and the line that's supposed to be loading the image in my script didn't hiccup: lockimage: load load %padlock.r Hmm, would have expected an error - maybe time to read the docs ...?
