It would be great if the new version could contains
these features :

  • Load a gif from raw data in memory, instead of a file
    and dump data to a file when needed. This is usefull
    for slow systems where disk read/write slow down even
    more the system.

  • A c++ wrapper could be intereting too, giving user to
    create gif from a file/memory/create a blank gif ,
    accesing pixels value by overloading
    operator()(int,int) for example...

    Gif from data to memory interface is now on the list for
    libungif5.

    C++ Wrapper is going to get a more tentative. Not sure how
    much work it's going to be. And I haven't yet determined
    where the interface is going to go. The libungif4
    interface is basically the same as Gershon first created for
    DOS. I need to look at libpng and other graphics libraries
    to determine if there's a different way of coding the
    interface that would be easier to use and reveal more
    features about the library.

    how does what you want differ from the functionality
    provided by EGifSpew? It seems you could allocate a
    GifFileType object and fill it with your data. Then
    EGifSpew it back out....

     
  • abadger is right, EGifSpew() already supplies most of this. Likely the submitter figured this out, as the FR hasn't been updated in 8 years. Closing it.
