    Hi,

    I use a Mac and as there is no software out there that is easy to convert bitmaps to C data arrays, I thought I would write a program like LCD Assistant for the mac. It shouldn't be too much trouble. The only thing I'm not sure on is the endianness function on LCD Assistant. From reading on the web it says that this means if the byte data is written either least sig bit on the left or right of the byte.

    When I try using LCD Assistant, changing from Little to Big doesn't actually change the outputted file at all.

    What am I missing? And is it worth me writing a Mac version?

    Just found another thread on another forum relating to this. It appears that all the endianness Little or Big function does is reverse the bytes that relate to the size of the image if you have checked the 'Include size' tick box.

    Now I've found out what that's all about I can have a look at coding a Mac version. If successful, It'll be free for anyone who wants it.
