Reads Windows BMP format images. Currently limited to 8 bit greyscale images and 24,32 bit (A)RGB images. Pure R implementation without external dependencies.
The recommendation is to install from CRAN.
You can, however, download the tar ball, and run
R CMD INSTALL on it, or use the devtools package to install the development version:
# install.packages("devtools")library(devtools)install_github("bmp", "jefferis")
