image source on a web page. Not long after I created the XBM Draw Library,
Microsoft discovered a bug in IE that, with a badly formed XBM, it could crash the browser. Instead of fixing the
bug, they simply disabled support for XBM images, regardless of the fact that it was the first image format supported on the web.
Below is a list of XBM stuff I have, and a link to the Windows Registry fix to re-enable XBMs in IE.
- XBM Draw Library
- (2002)Probably the most popular thing on my website...
- XBM Creator
- Earlier (2001) form-based generator - a cheap "drawing program"
- XBM-based Analog Clock
- An early (2001) program that generates a new
XBM every second to draw an analog (complete with a second hand) clock.
