Wand API

I'm very impressed with the Wand API, it does "work like magic"! It's simple, straight forward and no-nonsense, I really like that!

The documentation and tutorials could use some improvement though, actually there aren't any tutorials. But it's still a great API and all the code behind it.

I guess this response is too late, but maybe someone else has the same problem....


Debian stable:

On http://packages.debian.org/ (http://packages.debian.org/) you can search for a specific package and search the contents of all packages.

Awesome...saves me tons of time.
I was always trying to mess with Gimp and other programs to rotate my pictures one by one and I even tried messing with another program to make thumbnails, but this program takes care of all my problems. Thanks for the great program!

Good Software, but lacks doc


This is good software,
but there's no comprehensive doc.
If you want to program in the C API,
you will only have some reference documentation
along with the source code. But, I repeat,
this is great software!

Insatallation problems under Debian Linux
Can't seem to find the mailing list, so I'll post my question here.

I'm trying to install ImageMagick on my Debian Linux server and am getting the following error during the "make install" step

can't find xarch.h

which is required for the x.lo compile

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Re: Won't compile.
I put version 5.3.3 on update 6 of the Solaris 8 Companion CD ready compiled. I intend to put a more current version on a future update.

Re: Won't compile.
Go into magick/magick.h and at the top you will see a #define for
_XOPEN_SOURCE. Comment the whole line out and then the
build works fine.

configure --program-prefix=im

will do it.

What -is- the latest IM version that will compile
on Solaris (8)? The version I have at the moment,
on the university network, is BADLY outdated!

Namespace clashes
ImageMagick should stop using very common names like convert, combine, display, animate, identify, import, and stretch for its component programs because lots of other programs are already using these names. There are, for example, over 20 GPL/BSD programs using the names display and convert. ImageMagick should insert a short prefix before each program name, e.g. using the prefix "im" gives imconvert, imcombine, imdisplay, imstretch, etc.
