map_demo program

A PocketC native palm library offering native forms and assorted utilities

Postby jlb0430 on Fri Mar 19, 2004 2:05 am

Can anyone explain how I can convert a bmp file to a prc file? I would like to convert wiring diagrams and view them on a device just like the map demo that comes with PToolbox.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jeff Bonas

Assuming you have created the file on your desktop, open notepad and insert something like the following:

BITMAP ID 4000 "MyFirstBmp.bmp" COMPRESS //if large enough to require compression
//To add more .bmps simply repeat the above here, perhaps with:
BITMAP ID 4001 "MySecondBmp.bmp" COMPRESS

Save the file with your_desired_filename and the extension .rcp. Insert Pilrc.exe into the folder where your .rcp file is stored. Navigate to that folder from the DOS command line. Type: pilrc -ro my_desired_filename.rcp my_desired_filename.prc.

Sorry, should have mentioned that your bitmaps should also be in the same folder as your .rcp file during the conversion process.

I'm not sure what Pilrc.exe is. Is this part of Code Warrior? I am using PocketC Desktop and Orbforms. Is there a way to use these tools and convert the file?

Pilrc is a Palm resource compiler. I don't know whether it is included with CodeWarrior. It could well be. Anyway, you can download it at:

http://www.ardiri.com/palm/pilrc/manual.html

Once you've done that, be sure to check out the info about how to specify various types of bitmaps, such as colour bitmaps and bitmap families etc - the following is taken from the Pilrc documentation:

BITMAP creates a black & white bitmap resource.
BITMAPGREY creates a 2bpp (4 level grayscale) bitmap resource.
BITMAPGREY16 creates a 4bpp (16 level grayscale) bitmap resource.
BITMAPCOLOR16 creates a 4bpp (16 color) bitmap resource.
BITMAPCOLOR creates a 256 color bitmap resource.
BITMAPCOLOR16K creates a 16bpp direct color bitmap resource.
BITMAPCOLOR24K creates a 24bpp direct color bitmap resource.
BITMAPCOLOR32K creates a 32bpp direct color bitmap resource.
ICON and SMALLICON create black & white icon resources.

There are other programs with IDEs that can do the same thing, but as I've always used Pilrc, I can't speak for them.
