Add another 'Graphics' Package


This is an incomplete set of FFI bindings for the GraphicsMagick library. You will need to install GraphicsMagick first -- see:


I have tested these bindings with GraphicsMagick 1.2, which is available as a "snapshot" from the above URL. The library will not build with GraphicsMagick 1.1.10 or 1.1.11 (the most recent released version as of this writing). If it's important to you to be able to use this library with a stable released version of GraphicsMagick, let me know.

The Haddock documentation only includes type signatures so far, and that's not good enough. However, the API calls should mostly map onto those documented at:


Tests can be found in: Graphics.Transform.Magick.Test However, right now all tests are commented out since I didn't have time to change them to use non-hard-wired file names. I hope it should be obvious what my intentions were. A less ad hoc test framework would be better yet.

Please submit bug reports, questions, feedback, complaints, praise, and especially patches (including documentation patches) to the maintainer at:


I did a lot of this work during the second Haskell Hackathon (Hac II '07) in Freiburg in September 2007. I'd like to thank all the attendees at Hac II for their moral support, particularly Duncan Coutts for help with the FFI, as well as: Mark Jones, the members of the Portland Functional Programming Study Group, and David MacIver, for their encouragement.
