[FAQ] Why am I getting crummy looking thumbnails?

Q. I'm using the GD functions to create thumbnail images. Why am I getting
such crummy results?
A. imagecopyresize d() does not do a very good job scaling down images. Use
imagecopyresamp led() instead. If you are already using imagecopyresamp led(),
the problem might be that the destination image has limited color range.
Create it with imagecreatetrue color() instead of imagecreate().

Hi, There have been a few suggestions for changing the format of the FAQ site to make it easier to maintain. VK suggested and XML procedure. Matt Kruse suggested a wiki. I think something interactive would be good. Jim Ley pointed out wiki documentation doesn't always work well. I think a book type hierarchy of articles with user comments on each page would be a great way to go as it has been so successful for both PHP and MySQL. I am...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
