Description:


Package Documentation

This library contains additional graphics-interfacing components and infrastructure.
This includes support classes for the applicationModel framework, and readers/writers
for various bitmap image file formats (PNG, GIF, TIFF, etc.)

As with libview, this does not contain widget classes or applications/tools.

description
o  excludedFromPreRequisites
list all packages which should be ignored in the automatic
preRequisites scan. See #preRequisites for more.

o  mandatoryPreRequisites
list packages which are mandatory as a prerequisite.
This are packages containing superclasses of my classes and classes which
are extended by myself.
They are mandatory, because we need these packages as a prerequisite for loading and compiling.
This method is generated automatically,
by searching along the inheritance chain of all of my classes.
Please take a look at the #referencedPreRequisites method as well.

o  referencedPreRequisites
list packages which are a prerequisite, because they contain
classes which are referenced by my classes.
These packages are NOT needed as a prerequisite for compiling or loading,
however, a class from it may be referenced during execution and having it
unloaded then may lead to a runtime doesNotUnderstand error, unless the caller
includes explicit checks for the package being present.
This method is generated automatically,
by searching all classes (and their packages) which are referenced by my classes.
Please also take a look at the #mandatoryPreRequisites method

description - compilation
o  additionalBaseAddressDefinition_bc_dot_mak
this is an optional definition, which (if present) may speed up the dll-loading a little
on win32 systems.

o  additionalDefinitions_bc_dot_mak
(comment from inherited method)
allows for additional definitions/rules to be added to the bc.mak file.
Subclasses may redefine this.

o  additionalLinkLibraries_bc_dot_mak

o  additionalLinkLibraries_make_dot_proto

o  additionalRules_bc_dot_mak
(comment from inherited method)
obsolete - kept for compatibility with old project files

o  additionalRules_make_dot_proto
(comment from inherited method)
allows for additional rules to be added to the make.proto file.

o  additionalTargets_bc_dot_mak
additional targets to be added to the nt.mak file.

o  additionalTargets_make_dot_proto
additional targets to be added to the make.proto file.

o  localIncludes

o  stcOptimizationOptions
(comment from inherited method)
see the stc reference / stc usage for options.
Can be redefined in concrete packages.
For now, the following variants are useful:
+optspace3 most compact code
- use for all gui, application code.

+optinline +optinline2 +inlineNew
fastest code
- use only for computation-intensive classes

o  stcWarningOptions

description - contents
o  classNamesAndAttributes
lists the classes which are to be included in the project.
Each entry in the list may be: a single class-name (symbol),
or an array-literal consisting of class name and attributes.
Attributes are: #autoload or #<os> where os is one of win32, unix,...

o  extensionMethodNames
lists the extension methods which are to be included in the project.
Entries are 2-element array literals, consisting of class-name and selector.
A correponding method with real names must be present in my concrete subclasses
if it has extensions.

description - project information
o  companyName
Return a companyname which will appear in <lib>.rc

o  description
Return a description string which will appear in nt.def / bc.def

o  legalCopyright
Return copyright string which will appear in <lib>.rc

o  productName
Return a product name which will appear in <lib>.rc
