The Hermes pixel-format library
Hermes is a library that does the dirty work of a graphics library
or application that nobody else wants to do, and it does it fast
because the effort is concentrated on just that. The thing nobody
wants to do is conversion between pixel formats - between all pixel
formats that is, not between any two. There are handwritten assembler
routines in Hermes that should make anything look fast.
An application or library that uses Hermes will for example be able to
render into one buffer and convert it to whatever pixel format is available
on the target platform at the time.
Other services provided by Hermes include palette handling including
caching of lookup tables, and surface clearing to a specific colour value.
