This spot of code extends Perl Image::Base to draw into Prima windows or images, including loading and saving images. Prima supports various file formats, including JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, XBM, XPM and BMP.

Note Prima's Unix/X11 build does its drawing with the X server, so a display is needed even just to draw to a file.

Image-Base-Prima is free software (free as in freedom), published under the terms of the GNU General Public License (v3 or higher).

Download version 9 here, either the full source here or from CPAN, or a Debian package here or from my repo.

Image-Base-Prima-9.tar.gz (43k, and sig)
libimage-base-prima-perl_9-0.1_all.deb (16k, and sig)

The sig files are Gnu PG ascii armoured signatures generated from my key. There's a SIGNATURE file inside the .tar.gz for cpansign too. Older sources can be found at backpan.

As of libprima-perl is no longer in the Debian archive. To install the libimage-base-prima-perl deb will require a libprima-perl deb. Might try for one in my archive, but don't have one yet. If you run Prima from a source build then Image-Base-Prima is just two files to chuck somewhere in @INC.

See Image-Base page for other Image::Base things.
