L_LTFIL_API L_INT L_DecodeABIC(pInputData, nLength, ppOutputData, nAlign,nWidth, nHeight, bBiLevel)

L_UCHAR *pInputData;

input data buffer

L_SSIZE_T nLength;

size of input data

L_UCHAR **ppOutputData;

output data buffer to be updated

L_INT nAlign;

number of bytes used for alignment

L_INT nWidth;

image width in pixels

L_INT nHeight;

image height in pixels

L_BOOL bBiLevel;


Decodes the ABIC data and updates the ppOutputData parameter with the uncompressed raw data.

Parameter Description
pInputData Pointer to the input buffer that contains the ABIC compressed data.
nLength Size of the compressed data.
ppOutputData Pointer to a pointer to an output buffer to be updated with the uncompressed raw data.
nAlign Number of bytes used for aligning the uncompressed raw data pointed to by ppOutputData.
nWidth Width of the compressed ABIC data image, in pixels.
nHeight Height of the compressed data image, in pixels.
bBiLevel Flag that indicates whether the input data is bi-level or grayscale. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Input data pointed to by pInputData is 1-bit Bi-level.
  FALSE Input data pointed to by pInputData is 4-bit Grayscale.



The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


The function decompresses 1-bit bi-level or 4-bit grayscale ABIC raw data.

The output buffer pointed to by ppOutputData is allocated automatically by the function. The user is responsible for freeing this ppOutputData buffer by calling GlobalFreePtr() function.
