Ok here it goes... I have successfully dissected a Windows
Metafile. I have 2 questions that need to be answered in order for me to complete this Non-Windows C program. I have a nifty program that lists all the metafile records (functions and their arguments). For what I am doing, certain records are always the same (ie. I always incorporate a bitmap in my metafile so I always see the StretchDIB() GID function call in the .WMF dump). What I need to know is, What do I need to put as parameters in the Escape() functions and the StretchDIB function. Now I know the parameters are ALWAYS the same in the Escape() functions because their bit values are always the same. I don't know if this helps, but here is the values I always get when I dump a WMF file. From my testing, 2 bytes represent one number and the bytes are in reverse order (MSB then LSB)
Escape (34 bytes)
15 23 25922 26983 8302 24908 25977 144
0 7 24908 25977 8306 49
Escape (30 bytes)
15 20 24908 25977 8306 26966 26995 26978 26988 31092 0 1
Escape (20 bytes)
15 9 28229 8292 24908 25977 114
To get what I am showing you, I paste a .BMP file in Adobe Illustrator, export it as a Windows Metafile and view the list of records using a program called "listwmf.exe" from: www.CompanionSoftware.com
Since this program parallels a Windows C program, I may have to write a Windows C program instead that uses the Win32 GDI function calls instead of cutting and pasting their bits.
Now I need numbers for arguments in the StretchDIB() function since I am not writing a program, just manually creating the WMF from scratch.
If you cannot answer this, who can? And yes, I've already tried empire Microsoft.
