Anyone got the file ? Please upload it to omp :-)

Seems to work on early pentium with MMX ... for major/final release please compile -march=i80386 too.

Bright yellow text on white ... what about adding a dark background ? ;-)

Updated 2010-Apr ... did you fix the "EMM386 vs Ring0" flaw ? wrote:

Right ... or a progress indicator ;-)

Depends from document ...

Screen or page ? Being able to save the full page just from MUPDF would be cool (but there is PDFDRAW.EXE ... I just can't download it ... F***).

Depends from page size only, not amount of pages ?

> I don't know how printing of graphics docs works

ESC/P2 (old standard) or @#$%@%# (non-standard printers) ... or just save BMP (one page or all) and export the responsability to deal with the printer.

no 64 KiB limit , no B*** S*** :-)

Faster big and well aligned writes, slower or unreliable (?) reads ;-)

Use some CPUID tool (by RayeR or other) and post results. :hungry:

no MTTRR obligation

not present ???

WRTFM please. Source code of VESATEST would be nice but is not absolutely needed if no 3rd party GPL'ed code included. Source code for MUPDF is a must, see GPL (same would apply to MPLAYER ...) :-(

PDF 1.7 doesn't work:

(or at least my copy of this, downloaded in the past, 16'072'714 Byte's of bloat)

Much PDF bloat:

Anyone has smaller 1.7 PDF's to test ?

Are you missing something ??? MUPDF doesn't ZOOM the fonts nor the graphical elements (see shots far above), it just brews them in the final size !!! It does zoom embedded bitmaps, though (and there is no way to find out the "dpi" value for leaving them as-is :-()

This is a LOGITECH mouse driver, but some software expect here
