Outdated link to examples in the MagickWand documentation.

Outdated link to examples in the MagickWand documentation.

Post by colinkeenan » 2017-03-29T10:24:41-07:00

At the end of webpage https://www.imagemagick.org/script/magick-wand.php, it says:
MagickWand Examples in C illustrates how to use the ImageMagick MagickWand API. Each example is presented as a C function, complete with headers, so that it can be copied to a file and then included in your own C project.
Where "MagickWand Examples in C" is a link to http://members.shaw.ca/el.supremo/MagickWand/.

Upon clicking on that link, the user discovers that:
Members Webspace has been retired.

Please visit www.shaw.ca/appretirement for more details.
Following the link for more information says that
As of March 6, 2017, Webspace, Photo Share, Video Mail, and members.shaw.ca have been retired.

Hi,
That's my stuff. As it says, my ISP has closed down the (free) webspace part of their service. I have saved all the files but do not have an alternate website to display the MagickWand examples. For now, I have archived the whole directory into a zip file which can be downloaded from [https://www.dropbox.com/s/pamagq53u70ip ... d.zip?dl=0]dropbox[/url].
Just open the index.html file in a web browser (Firefox, whatever).

Pete
Sorry, my ISP shutdown all personal webspace so my MagickWand Examples in C is offline.
See my message in this topic for a link to a zip of all the files.

Maybe you could use github pages (https://pages.github.com/) for your examples?
.NET + ImageMagick = Magick.NET https://github.com/dlemstra/Magick.NET, @MagickNET, Donate

Good idea. I'll look into it.
Thanks
