Data types

spng_ctx

typedef struct spng_ctx spng_ctx;

Context handle.

Note

The context handle has no public members.

spng_ctx_flags

enum spng_ctx_flags
{
    SPNG_CTX_IGNORE_ADLER32 = 1, /* Ignore checksum in DEFLATE streams */
    SPNG_CTX_ENCODER = 2 /* Create an encoder context */
};

spng_read_fn

typedef int spng_read_fn(spng_ctx *ctx, void *user, void *dest, size_t length)

Type definition for callback passed to spng_set_png_stream() for decoders.

A read callback function should copy length bytes to dest and return 0 or SPNG_IO_EOF/SPNG_IO_ERROR on error.

spng_write_fn

typedef int spng_write_fn(spng_ctx *ctx, void *user, void *src, size_t length)

Type definition for callback passed to spng_set_png_stream() for encoders.

The write callback should process length bytes and return 0 or SPNG_IO_ERROR on error.

spng_format

enum spng_format
{
    SPNG_FMT_RGBA8 = 1,
    SPNG_FMT_RGBA16 = 2,
    SPNG_FMT_RGB8 = 4,

    SPNG_FMT_GA8 = 16,
    SPNG_FMT_GA16 = 32,
    SPNG_FMT_G8 = 64,

    /* No conversion or scaling */
    SPNG_FMT_PNG = 256, /* host-endian */
    SPNG_FMT_RAW = 512  /* big-endian */
};

Note

The channels are always in byte-order representation.

The alpha channel is always straight alpha, premultiplied alpha is not supported.

spng_filter

enum spng_filter
{
    SPNG_FILTER_NONE = 0,
    SPNG_FILTER_SUB = 1,
    SPNG_FILTER_UP = 2,
    SPNG_FILTER_AVERAGE = 3,
    SPNG_FILTER_PAETH = 4
};

spng_row_info

struct spng_row_info
{
    uint32_t scanline_idx;
    uint32_t row_num;
    int pass;
    uint8_t filter;
};

Contains row and scanline information, used for progressive decoding and encoding.

spng_option

enum spng_option
{
    SPNG_KEEP_UNKNOWN_CHUNKS = 1,

    SPNG_IMG_COMPRESSION_LEVEL,
    SPNG_IMG_WINDOW_BITS,
    SPNG_IMG_MEM_LEVEL,
    SPNG_IMG_COMPRESSION_STRATEGY,

    SPNG_TEXT_COMPRESSION_LEVEL,
    SPNG_TEXT_WINDOW_BITS,
    SPNG_TEXT_MEM_LEVEL,
    SPNG_TEXT_COMPRESSION_STRATEGY,

    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE,
};

spng_filter_choice

enum spng_filter_choice
{
    SPNG_DISABLE_FILTERING = 0,
    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE_NONE = 8,
    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE_SUB = 16,
    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE_UP = 32,
    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE_AVG = 64,
    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE_PAETH = 128,
    SPNG_FILTER_CHOICE_ALL = (8|16|32|64|128)
};

API

spng_ctx_new()

spng_ctx *spng_ctx_new(int flags)

Creates a new context.

spng_ctx_new2()

spng_ctx *spng_ctx_new2(struct spng_alloc *alloc, int flags)

Creates a new context with a custom memory allocator, it is passed to zlib.

alloc and its members must be non-NULL.

spng_ctx_free()

void spng_ctx_free(spng_ctx *ctx)

Releases context resources.

spng_set_png_stream()

int spng_set_png_stream(spng_ctx *ctx, spng_rw_fn *rw_func, void *user)

Set input PNG stream or output PNG stream, depending on context type.

This can only be done once per context.

Info

PNG’s are read up to the file end marker, this is identical behavior to libpng.

spng_set_png_file()

int spng_set_png_file(spng_ctx *ctx, FILE *file)

Set input PNG file or output PNG file, depending on context type.

This can only be done once per context.

spng_set_image_limits()

int spng_set_image_limits(spng_ctx *ctx, uint32_t width, uint32_t height)

Set image width and height limits, these may not be larger than 231-1.

spng_get_image_limits()

int spng_get_image_limits(spng_ctx *ctx, uint32_t *width, uint32_t *height)

Get image width and height limits.

width and height must be non-NULL.

spng_set_chunk_limits()

int spng_set_chunk_limits(spng_ctx *ctx, size_t chunk_size, size_t cache_limit)

Set chunk size and chunk cache limits, the default chunk size limit is 231-1, the default chunk cache limit is SIZE_MAX.

Reaching either limit while decoding is handled as an out-of-memory error.

Note

This can only be used for limiting memory usage, most standard chunks do not require additional memory and are stored regardless of these limits.

spng_get_chunk_limits()

int spng_get_chunk_limits(spng_ctx *ctx, size_t *chunk_size, size_t *cache_limit)

Get chunk size and chunk cache limits.

spng_get_row_info()

int spng_get_row_info(spng_ctx *ctx, struct spng_row_info *row_info)

Copies the current, to-be-decoded (or to-be-encoded) row’s information to row_info.

spng_set_option()

int spng_set_option(spng_ctx *ctx, enum spng_option option, int value)

Set option to the specified value.

spng_get_option()

int spng_get_option(spng_ctx *ctx, enum spng_option option, int *value)

Get the value for the specified option.
