Pixel format conversion library
HERMES is a library designed to convert a source buffer with a specified pixel format to a destination buffer with possibly a different format at the maximum possible speed. On x86 and MMX architectures, handwritten assembler routines are taking over the job and doing it lightning fast. On top of that, HERMES provides fast surface clearing, stretching and some dithering. Supported platforms are basically all that have an ANSI C compiler as there is no platform specific code but those are supported: DOS, Win32 (Visual C), Linux, FreeBSD (IRIX, Solaris are on hold at the moment), some BeOS support.
