Subject: bigarray & int24
Hi,

my program should read unaligned 3 byte integers. (A real world
example for such a format would be an RGB image). What is
the best approach?

  - extend bigarray for the int24 format and send the patch to INRIA
  - write a C-function, which converts the data to an int32-array
  - read an 1-byte-bigarray and construct an int-bigarray
  - ???

It should be a bigarray solution, because my program reads other
(supported)
formats as well.

Speed matters, because there are a lot of data.

Thanks,

Christoph Bauer
