Red Extract - Cocoa

So I've been working on a program started in July last year (2007)* which wraps a terminal program I wrote to process image data for the robot. The encapsulation basically puts a nice (cocoa) GUI front end on it so that I can twiddle parameters dynamically. Like all things when you are not an absolute expert, some things take a long time - in my case it was 8 hours to put a raw bitmap on the screen with NSImage. The final solution? About 4 lines of code!

Anyhow, the real useful stuff starts now - trying various algorithms to do the image processing. Should be fun if a bit of an unknown.

By the way, this post was typed on my iPhone directly onto blogger (edit HTML because compose doesn't appear to work). Feels very sluggish and the phone is warm so I guess I might try sending in a blog entry by email.

P.S. The gap was because as well as having other commitments we also changed the hardware architecture to include two processors and a video fifo.
