    Smile working with images

    Hey to everybody!!

    this is a real short, simple question but one that i just cant seem to find an answear to!!!

    When a computer saves an image to disc, What exactly does it save in all those little memory spaces and what do i have to do to access them...use binary?

    where can i learn to do that?

    Sorry i should've said questions!!

    The disc contains a file system. Look for information on the ISO9660 File System. Also, you could download a Linux kernel and look in the source code for the way to read/write the ISO9660 filesystem.

    I'm almost certain that's not what the OP had in mind.

    bassinvader, take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_formats. Each image format stores its data differently. And yes, you'd want to read the file as a binary file.

Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
