ipack -x SCRIPT
ipack -u SCRIPT
The first parameter determines the mode of operation:
The names of the associated Flex archive and palette files are given in lines containing optional whitespace, one of the tokens archive or palette, whitespace, and the filename.
Other lines define one shape each, and must begin with an image slot number, followed by a slash (/), the number of frames, a colon (:), and finally the PNG file specification. The numbers may be given either in decimal, in octal prefixed with 0; or in hexadecimal prefixed with 0x. The file specification consists of the filename PREFIX, optionally followed by a number and direction in brackets, optionally followed by whitespace and the word flat.
Per default, each shape corresponds to a number of PNG files (one for each frame) named PREFIXnn.png with nn replaced by the frame number. If the optional bracket expression is used in the specification the Shape corresponds to a single PNG file instead. This file contains all frames, each of which is 8 by 8 pixels in size, arranged next to each other in a rectangular grid. The number in the bracket expression gives the size of this grid in the direction indicated. The direction can be either down or across.
# put the palette into this file
# the zeroth image has 32 frames in the files
# zero00.png to zero31.png
# image 5 consists of 22 frames stored in file
# five.png in a grid 5 frames across (which means
# 5 rows of which the last holds only 2 frames)
5/22:five(5 across) flat
# image 4 consists of 12 frames stored in file
# four.png in a 3 by 4 grid
4/12:four(4 down) flat
# images 1 to 3 are unspecified
