L_LTKRN_API L_INT L_ExpandRow(pRunBuffer, pBuffer, nCol, nWidth)

Does buffer-to-buffer decompression of RLE-compressed 1-bit image data. Use this function to process all or part of a single line of image data.


L_UINT16* pRunBuffer

Pointer to the input buffer containing 1-bit compressed image data.

L_UCHAR* pBuffer

Pointer to the output buffer, which is to be filled with 1-bit image data. Use integer math to calculate the required size of this buffer as follows: bytes required = ( nWidth + 7) / 8.


Column offset within the row to be processed. The function skips this many pixels before it begins processing.

L_INT nWidth

The number of pixels to process.


Value Meaning
> 0 The number of pixels processed.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function is useful for working with 1-bit images that are loaded in their compressed formats for faster loading and display. For more information, refer to Speeding Up 1-Bit Documents.
