[00:51:57] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz....")
[02:05:36] --- Darke|zzZ is now known as Darke
[11:00:53] --> wjp has joined #pentagram
[11:00:53] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wjp
[11:07:20] <wjp> I finally figured out the last couple of details on U8's shape compression, btw :-)
[11:07:58] <wjp> It can finally decompress shape 1 flawlessly now
[11:08:47] <wjp> (and 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10, 11, 12, 13, ... ;-) )
[11:15:13] <wjp> *sigh*.. now I just need to write an RLE function to get the images back into u8's shape format
[11:39:01] <wjp> ack! it still produces an error in shape 59
[12:03:04] <Darke> Hmm... is there any reason to use U8's shape format rather then a standard RLE encoded image?
[12:03:21] <wjp> we already have an u8 shape reader? :-)
[12:03:23] <Darke> After all, we're not really concerned about in-memory image sizes now. *grin*
[12:03:31] <wjp> whee! fixed the last problem too!
[12:03:42] <wjp> it now decodes 0-851 pixel-perfect :-)
[12:03:51] <Darke> Cool!
[12:03:52] <wjp> (unless there's a bug in my image comparison function ;-) )
[12:04:54] * Darke snickers.

[18:09:54] <wjp> woohoo! shape uncompressor and encoder done :-)
[18:14:33] <wjp> hm, it makes the final .flx about 150K larger than the original encoder, though
[18:28:08] <wjp> 110K...
[18:33:11] <wjp> runtime is about 16 seconds
[18:33:25] * wjp declares it "good enough" and commits :-)
