Projects / Image::Size


The Image::Size module for Perl provides a clean interface for fetching image dimensions (and type, when unknown) from graphics files in a wide variety of common formats. It is a pure Perl extension (no C or XS linking required) that has been tested on a variety of UNIX, Linux and BSD systems, as well as MacPerl and Windows ports of Perl. It was designed around and tuned for use in CGI application development, but is useful in other areas as well.

      Release Notes: Compress::Zlib was added to the list of required modules in Makefile.PL and Build.PL. "use warnings" was added to to make sure it stays warnings-clean.
