This package provides commands for the conversion of ZSoft Personal Computer eXChange (PCX) images into CRIMP images. Note that this package does not provide the ability to write images in the PCX format.

For a basic introduction of the whole CRIMP eco-system please read the CRIMP - Introduction to CRIMP (sic!). The basic concepts used here, like images, image types, etc. are described in the reference manpage for the CRIMP - Foundation. We will not repeat them here, but assume that the reader knows them already.

The commands it provides all fall into the I/O category of the general design.


::crimp read pcx string

This method extends the ::crimp read ensemble. It takes the (possibly binary) string holding an image in the PCX format and returns an image of type rgb containing it.
