I am new to graphics programming, I was recently reading a Pcx file decode algorithm,and there are a few things that I would like to clear up
1.What are Color Planes and how they are actually stored in image format like
pcx and in vga memory.
2.What is the difference between
image line length(width*planes)
scan line length(bytes per line* planes)
and actual width of image
3.Is there any ebook someone could recommend which explains these terms in detail ?
