Sigh. Working with notYET[Wiki] again, specifically C#. You might think that in the byte pointer to data gotten back from a call that specifies ...PixelFormat.Format32bppArgb that b[0] would be alpha, b[1] red, and so forth, but nooooo, in fact, it's bgra.

Probably, except that this being Microsoft, that'll undoubtedly result in pages of compiler spew that reads something like "Warning: htonl is unsafe and deprecated, use _htonl_s() instead"...

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
