is anyone using poppler with fixed point arithmetic (--enable-fixedpoint)?
I've played around with it but had mixed results:
- using the 0.5.0 developement release it doesn't compile right away.
Changing #define USE_FIXEDPOINT in config.h into #define USE_FIXEDPOINT 1
and adding one or two casts fixed that.
- Certain documents will crash poppler with a SIGFPE.
- Is it actually faster on cpus without a FPU? I couldn't
benchmark it because the QT-binding is way to slow ATM.
(It's using two nested loops width getPixel/setPixel to copy the
bitmap data. I tried to fix it but i couldn't figure out how to
copy the raw data in one chunk).
