       PS_open_image — Reads an image for later placement


       #include <pslib.h>

       int  PS_open_image(PSDoc  *psdoc, char *type, char *source, char *data,
       int lenght, int width, int height, int components, int bpc, const  char


       Reads  an  image  which  is  already available in memory. The parameter
       source is currently not evaluated  and  assumed  to  be  ‘memory’.  The
       parameter  type  can be either ‘raw’ or ‘eps’. Images in raw format are
       expected to be a stream of pixels starting in the upper left and ending
       in  the  lower  right  corner.  Each  pixel  is  a  tuple of components
       representing the colors. Each component  consists  of  bpc  bit.  Color
       imgags  expect  the  components  to be stored in RGB or CMYK order. The
       number of components implies the colorspace. 4 components imply a  CMYK
       image  and not an RGB image with an alpha channel. This restriction may
       be removed in later versions.

       EPS images are expect as stored in a file. There is no need to set  any
       other  paramter.  The  height  und width of the image is taken from the
       bounding box within the image data.


       Returns identifier of the image or zero  in  case  of  an  error.   The
       identifier is a positiv number greater 0.
