ASCII Editor Info: #21 Memory +------------------------------------+ It is important that you understand the following: THE PROGRAM ISN'T CHECKING YOUR MEMORY. Most programs act in the same way because Windows managed it. Nevertheless you should be careful with some functions. 1.) Conversion functions: If you convert a bitmap please think about the resample settings. A 1:1 import of a 800x600 picture will create a grid with 480000 chars. ! 2.) Picture overlay: Takes away more memory than the file size of the bitmap (+0.5MB). This is the result of the overlay mode. 3.) BMP2Colorgrid foreground: You shouldn't import files with too much colors ! It takes memory and the size of the saved HTML file will increase exponential !!! 4.) BMP2Colorgrid background: This is a experimental functions which goes to the limit of the program. Please use it very carefully ! If some grid cells haven't been imported correct this is a result of demanding too much ! 5.) Found main font color: The problem are the RGB colors. It happens to me one time, that the program didn't react any longer. Normally it is only a question of time ( can take some minutes), but if there is no change in the statusbar for more than 2 minutes you should exit the program. TIP: If you make one of this operations with a large file, please save it before.
