Subject RE: Getting a PIC - And errors found in EscherDump (got fixes if want)
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2005 17:04:27 GMT
No, they are stored in the Datastream BUT not in the format that the 
documentation states. But using the Escher format you should be able to grab 
MOST (not all) picture data, as images inserted into a Word file from Word 
'97 or later are now stored as Escher objects, even if they're not drawings 
but jpegs, etc.

The documentation states that the file is saved as a PIC header followed by 
the filename as a Pascal string and then the file data. That is not even 
remotely close to what actually exists there. Instead, there's the PIC 
header structure, then IF it's an Escher object, you've got the insane 
Escher heading structure (similar to, but even worse than the grppls of 
srpms) and then the actual file data.

Hope this helps!

(BTW, did anyone notice the oddly sexual nature of the Word naming 
structure? A whole host of sprms everywhere, which are linked to STDs, which 
of course require a PAP to discern and was all preceded by a whole lot of 
grppl-ing) -JK
