  pawgr 0.9 README 
--------------------

An extractor for the graphics in PAW games saved as Spectrum emulator snapshots.

Version 0.9, by Jose Luis Cebrian Pague. 
Archive includes aros-i386 executable and source code.

This is just a litte utility that renders one graphic of a Spectrum
PAW snapshot, then saves it in a .png file.

PAW (Professional Adventure Writing System) is a Spectrum parser,
where a parser is some software that lets a writer with little
programming knowledge to write her/his own text adventure game.

If you happen to have some old text adventure of your own lying
around, you can use pawgr to extract its graphics. This program
was not created to be very useful, but just for fun. And it may
some day be part of a "PAW emulator".


GETTING IT RUNNING
------------------

You need a working libpng in order to compile pawgr. Simply type
"make" in a GNU system, it does not require anything fancy. If
you come into problems or manage to get a DOS/Win/Amiga/your-SO
port running, feel free to drop me a line at jlceb()redestb.es
	

IS IT ACCURATE?
---------------

The line drawing is pixel-perfect. It is based in a dissasembly of
the Spectrum Basic line drawing routine that PAW seems to use.
The filling is not, so some graphics aren't accurate or are just
plain wrong. Most graphics are OK.

You may have some adventure that does not clear the screen in order
to display a graphic. The result is that what comes to the screen
higly depends on what was here before (ie. for filling). Rendering
its graphics nicely may not be possible.

I may come some day with another version that solves this problems,
with some work.  Tell me if you are interested.
