Synopsis and invited feedback

Peer review is important and acquiring competent reviewers is becoming a major problem for the journals today so I will be very happy to include constructive comment (positive or negative) with acknowledgement. If I am not competent to judge your commentary I will try and find somebody who is.

If you would like to provide feedback just e-mail me here.

Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )
Thomas Boutell's GD graphics library is a very nice piece of work for generating web graphics in .png or .jpg format. This software layer is an implementation of the ISO GKS 2-D device independent graphics standard on top of GD. It leaves out some of the bureaucratic bits but implements world coordinates, normalised device coordinates, clipping and transformations. Its written in C and is pretty fast. It currently contains just one device driver, for the GD libraries but adding others is very simple. It uses the standard GKS calls prefixed by gks_. This allows it to sit on top of another GKS system if necessary to pull in lots of other devices. The package has been in use for some time so should be pretty robust. Note that this is a complete self-contained implementation containing those parts of GD necessary to run a test example on Windows or Linux. Comments are welcome. Special thanks go to Thomas Boutell for GD.None yet9
