Create an reader instance.

FC_ImageHandle FormatCorePlugin_CreateReader();

Return Value

Handle to new reader instance.


The handle returned will be used to open an image file using FormatCorePlugin_OpenImage. it is used in each function that accesses the image, such as pan and zoom. Independent create and destroy functions are used to make it easier to store state information (if FormatCorePlugin_OpenImage returned a new handle, it would be invalid in case of an error).
