BiTCab v.1.0

Applications in Delphi and BCB > Data Compress > Custom Formats

By BRS.

Freeware 14 Jun 2010

Description

BitCab is a bitmap compressor/cabinet program. It is a simple program not intended to compete seriously with the 'industrial strength' file compressors. However it is a little different, being designed only for creating and handling compressed bitmap cabinet files (BMPCab).

Compression is often better than many general purpose 'zip' programs and decompression reasonably quick. However it does depend on the color complexity of the bitmap. Getting a cabinet of less than 10% of the total bitmaps size isn't unusual.

The compressed bitmap doesn't appear to be damaged in any way and competes with a PNG file in size.

RightDelete v.3

Applications in Delphi and BCB > Security > Data Remove

By BRS.

Freeware + source 10 Nov 2010

Description

RightDelete is a simple but potentially very powerful secure file deletion application. It is used from the Explorer context menu or by dropping files onto or copying files and pasting them to a desktop shortcut link. As far as I know, it should run in all flavours of Windows.

File deletion is achieved using the US DoD 5220 compliant seven pass method, ie overwriting the file content with $00, $ff, $00, $ff, $00, $ff, random(256). At each overwrite, buffers are flushed to disk. In addition, the file is renamed at the start of the process and before final deletion using random file names. At the end of this process the file is then actually deleted from the disk.

Using JPEG.Scale

Code Samples > Samples > Multimedia And Graphics

By BRS.

Freeware + source 09 May 2011

Description

Getting a large JPEG loaded into a TImage component can sometimes be very slow. Think about decompressing a 5.5Mb file to 24Mb of data and getting that into the image and you can understand why. Try resizing a large multi_MB JPEG image to a thumbnail using standard resampling or resizing techniques and see just how long it takes.

In order to reduce that time, I've been delving into the use of the JPEG Scale option which, with a tweek or two, can considerably improve that time. There are a few items about it on the net but I believe it deserves more prominence.

The attached simple application is my offering on the subject. Have a look at the code to see how Scale is used.
