-xtract, produce the script file with the appropriate quotes... Since, under Unix, the only characters that are not allowed in a file name are NUL and "
/", I don't see why DeuTex should prevent users from extracting lumps with weird characters in their names. However, that might cause compatilibity problems with the DOS version.

It seems DeuTex sometimes uses a close match even when an exact match exists.

RAWtoPIC()could use some optimization.
Warning: xxxxxxxx.xxx: assuming the transparent colour is cyan.") and the transparent colour for this image is set to cyan. This would make for a smooth transition from DeuTex 3 to DeuTex 4. There should be a command-line switch to disable that feature.

email@example.com> offered the following comment on 1999-07-04 :
Audio handling in deutex (I'm referring to the irix 5.3 version's included source code) is, I believe, based on dmgraph, but is pretty dire in any case.
Imported sounds are all resampled to 11025 Hz, even though that hasn't been necessary since some time between v1.2 and v1.666 (basically, any version that uses the item-respawn sound has the improved sound engine). Exasperatingly, lxdoom (or maybe sndserv?) takes several steps back by expecting sounds to be *raw* 11025 Hz data. You may be able to set new options to reflect this.
Also, one would hope that eventually one or more of the source ports will start to support bitrates other than 8 bit, and (maybe?) stereo samples. You may want to start leaning on various source ports' programmers to get their acts together and start coming to some sort of agreement. ;)
Importation of .wav files is pretty crufty. Like dmgraph before it, the deutex 5.3 source expects there to be just one big 'data' chunk, and doesn't notice the 'info' chunks that certain stupid Windows programs (*cough*cough*CoolEdit*GoldWave*cough*) insist on putting in (usually with copyright messages for the program itself, which in a just world would be illegal). Greater explanation of all this whacky chunk business can be found at:
http://www.compsoc.man.ac.uk/~maniac/resource_web/wav_file_format/(wav1.htm, wav2.htm, wav3.htm, 4.htm, 5.htm)
Essentially, you want to clip out the first 'data' chunk and ignore crap like 'info', 'inam', 'list', or whatever.
