Introduction to libjpeg-turbo

libjpeg-turbo is a fork of the original IJG libjpeg which uses SIMD to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg is a library that implements JPEG image encoding, decoding and transcoding.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.

sed -i -e '/^docdir/     s:$:/libjpeg-turbo-1.3.1:' \
       -e '/^exampledir/ s:$:/libjpeg-turbo-1.3.1:' Makefile.in &&

./configure --prefix=/usr           \
            --mandir=/usr/share/man \
            --with-jpeg8            \

make

To test the results, issue: make test.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Short Descriptions

cjpeg

compresses image files to produce a JPEG/JFIF file on the standard output. Currently supported input file formats are: PPM (PBMPLUS color format), PGM (PBMPLUS gray-scale format), BMP, and Targa.

djpeg

decompresses image files from JPEG/JFIF format to either PPM (PBMPLUS color format), PGM (PBMPLUS gray-scale format), BMP, or Targa format.

jpegtran

is used for lossless transformation of JPEG files.

rdjpgcom

displays text comments from within a JPEG file.

tjbench

is used to benchmark the performance of libjpeg-turbo.

wrjpgcom

inserts text comments into a JPEG file.

libjpeg.so

contains functions used for reading and writing JPEG images.
