tBDW is a scriptable interface for Project Dogwaffle,
a painting and animation tool by Dan Ritchie.
It provide an environment for experimenting with image processing
algorithms, using thinBasic.
thinBasic is a powerful yet easy to use scripting language by
Eros Olmi. Everyone familiar with any BASIC-like syntax will found
himself at home writing code in thinBasic.
tBDW is derived by another project of mine, DogLua witch
in turn was largely inspired by gluas,
by OEyvind Kolaas.
First, You need to have thinBasic installed. Then, it's just a matter of being
sure that the tBDW.DLL can be found by thinBasic. The DLL can be simply put in
the same folder of the script(s) to be executed, for example.
If Project Dogwaffle is running, the included negative.tbasic sample should
be working right away with a double click, simply after unzipping this package.
The file tBDW_keywords.txt contains all the keywords currently implemented by
tBDW; to get syntax hilighting in the thinAir editor, simply add its contents
to the thinbasic\thinAir\Syntax\BASKeyWords.txt file.
Here's a quick summary of the presently available functions. This is just a minimal initial subset
and will be expanded and completed soon, but it's already more than enough to start coding something
TBDW_SetRGB(x, y, r, g, b)
TBDW_GetRGB(x, y, r, g, b)
TBDW_SetValue(x, y, v)
TBDW_GetValue(x, y, v)
