WinCE C++ Color BMP to 4bit ?


I have a colored BMP (in bytes) which I want to convert to a 4bit monochrom bitmap.

I can do it in .NET CF, but it's slow.

I'm very new to C++, could anyone post a small DLL code in eVC++ which can do that?
It has to be in C++ for Windows CE

I would even paypal you some $ :-)

Thanks a lot!!

I found this code here:


Which lets me convert a bmp to a 4bit colored bmp.

After changing the color palette to:

     static RGBQUAD rgb [16] =     {0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00,
    0x14, 0x14, 0x14, 0x00,
    0x20, 0x20, 0x20, 0x00,
    0x2c, 0x2c, 0x2c, 0x00,
    0x38, 0x38, 0x38, 0x00,
    0x45, 0x45, 0x45, 0x00,
    0x51, 0x51, 0x51, 0x00,
    0x61, 0x61, 0x61, 0x00,
    0x71, 0x71, 0x71, 0x00,
    0x82, 0x82, 0x82, 0x00,
    0x92, 0x92, 0x92, 0x00,
    0xa2, 0xa2, 0xa2, 0x00,
    0xb6, 0xb6, 0xb6, 0x00,
    0xcb, 0xcb, 0xcb, 0x00,
    0xe3, 0xe3, 0xe3, 0x00,
    0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0x00}

I get a 4 bit monochrom bitmap as I wanted.

Now I think most of the code that will be needed to create a eVC++-DLL is in this project, but I dont know how to built it...
