Hi Michael,

Surely there is a library that does what you're asking?  (As far as I can
tell from your message, it is just an image viewer).

If you give a bit more background on the application you need performed at
the end, someone might be able to suggest something that will do what you
want, short of porting the library you have.  For example, the ImageMagick
library  ( does a lot of image processing and
display functions, and there could well be a viewer based on this that does
at least some of what you want.
