Transformer is an automatic file type converter and daemon. It automatically converts the file type while renaming a file, based on the source and destination file extension. Currently it supports conversion for image types and provides a GTK+ frontend.

How to install:

./configure --prefix /path/to/install


./autogen --prefix /path/to/install

make install

Using Transformer:

After Installing:

Transformer is written, so that SPY Module can effectively use the transformer.

End user will find it difficult to use it.

To test the transformer,

$ transformer < filename with different Ext with full path >


Logo.png is a file of Type image/jpeg

$ transformer /home/user/photo/Logo.png

will convert the file to an actual png file (Spy used full path, hence use full path)

A config file (transformer.xml) is created, so that user can adjust the config file and make the transformer work as per the config file. If you dont want any particular conversion to take place, then remove that from the config file.

The config file is installed in the PREFIX/etc/autoficon/transformer.config as well as $HOME/.transformer.config. Adjust the file in the home dir, which the transformer module will lookup before doing the transformation.

What's New in This Release:

· Created directories under src to categorize
· Rewrite plugins, with convert_file (char* source, char* dest)
· tf_config_from_modules - program to return the XML code for config file
· Remove the file transformer.xml
· Checking in sources for the Transformer-GUI, GXFormer 0.1.1
· Adding README file for gxformer
· Script file to generate the executable
· Add command line help
