MGRX is a 2D graphics library derived from the GRX library. On DOS it
supports VGA and VESA compliant cards. MGRX is a fork of GRX 2.4.7 and
only offers the C API.


DJGPP specific changes.
=======================

The sources have not been modified at all. I have added support for the
jpeg, png and pnm formats trough the already ported jpeg and png libraries.
This implies that if you use libmgrx.a you will have to install and link
the following libraries too:
ljpeg6bb.zip (losless jpeg library)
png1216b.zip (png/pnm library)
zlib123b.zip (zlib)
to your application adding the following to your gcc command line:
-ljpeg -lpng -lz

The MGRX library comes with a font set. Because there is no standard place
in MSDOS/DJGPP where to store it, I have opted to store it in the same place
where the unix/linux port of MGRX will store it, this is:
/usr/local/lib/fonts/grx
That unix path becomes:
$DJDIR/lib//fonts/grx
on a DJGPP system.

If you do not like any of these changes, you will have to recompile the
library and binaries from scratch reverting the changes I have done to the
makedefs.grx file. The changes I have done are documented in /djgpp/diffs.

Please read the MGRX documentation stored in $DJDIR/share/doc/mgrx-0.97.


The port consists of two packages that have been compiled using stock
djdev203 and that can be downloaded from ftp.delorie.com and mirrors as
(timestamp 2007-08-02):

MGRX 0.9.7 binaries, headers, library and documentation:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/current/v2tk/mgrx097b.zip

MGRX 0.9.7 sources:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/current/v2tk/mgrx097s.zip


For the convenience of the WinXP users the binaries has been produced
a second time using the djdev204 beta library. This package is available
at ftp.delorie.com and mirrors as (timestamp 2007-08-02):

MGRX 0.9.7 binaries, headers, library and documentation:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/beta/v2tk/mgrx097b.zip


Send MGRX specific bug reports to < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >.
Send suggestions and bug reports concerning the DJGPP port to
comp.os.msdos.djgpp or < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >.


Enjoy.

Hi,

it is a newer version than GRX and should be used instead of it. Maybe it
would be good to replace GRX at the Zip-packer?!

Bye
