Please enjoy this link to a library I wrote. It allows APLers to read
images into the APL environment. The returned data structure is a three
dimensional matrix, where each plane represents a sub-pixel.
Additionally, you can take a 3×X×Y sized matrix and write it as a .bmp
file. Support is very limited at this time. This is documented in the
README. The goal of this library is meant to assist in getting images in
and out of APL, and not for processing images within APL (for example
computer vision algorithms, or resizing an image).
Can this be added to the Community page
(https://www.gnu.org/software/apl/Community.html) ? If I am missing some
standards that would prevent it's inclusion, I will gladly edit the
project to conformity.
