Troy, the API primer looks good if you're working with the C/C++ code and
the C/C++ code API seems fairly complete. But I'm not sure it helps people
working with other programming languages (eg Pascal/Java etc) that much
though. For example, the java port has a lot missing so someone wanting to
work on this is going to need a lot more basic understanding of how things
work "under the covers" - file formats and the like. There don't appear to
be a lot of comments in the C/C++ code to explain what is going on.

Is it expected (or required) that all ports will (or should) work the same
way as the C code?

Is anyone currently working on the Java code port? If so, how can I help??

Regards & God bless...
