Saving a graphic image file.

Saving a graphic image file.

Saving a graphic image file.


I was wondering if anyone knows exactly how to save a grahic image file using the 'GET' command then BSAVEing the file. I don't think i'm doing it right because I keep getting 5 pixels that don't belong in my image. this is how my subroutine is set up...

GET (icox, icoy)-STEP(gridW(frame) - 1, gridH(frame) - 1), array(index(frame))
LOCATE 10, 10: PRINT "Enter in Filename:"
LOCATE 11, 10: INPUT ; filename$
DEF SEG = VARSEG(array(0))
BSAVE filename$, VARPTR(array(0)), 10000
GOSUB clrdwg
PUT (icox, icoy), array(0)

The number of elements never exceeds 300
Does anyone know how to calculate the number of bytes??
I have 10000 here. Is that why I'm getting unwanted pixels??

If U can help please reply. Much appreciated

RE: Saving a graphic image file.

You calculate the number of bytes by multiplying the size of the array by 4, so you would need 1204 bytes saved.  The reason that you use 1204 and not 1200 is becuase you have to include array(0)
