? - Is he asking how to read a bmp file and display it on the screen or something else?

I don't know what he's asking...

Java has built-in support for reading .bmp and .gif. Use http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/api/javax/swing/ImageIcon.html to read them. I'm not sure how you would write them.

dee: I'm assuming you want to convert from 1 file format to BMP. Do you know the name of the file format or have a file specficiation for it?

Maybe you should look at the bmp file format.


Thats what i got when I googled for it. I think you want to do something with the monochrome version of the format.
