Summary: Log Embeded Images

Initial Comment:
This might be aim specific, I'm not sure if the other protocols can do this. But in aim, you can send an image embedded in an IM. But in the logs it just comes out to be something like

(2:48:05 AM) Dave1g: <IMG ID="1">
(2:48:14 AM) Dave1g: <IMG ID="2">

Deadaim used to log the sent images so I know its technically feasible.

Create  a folder in that log directory with the name date_images and src the images from there so when the html log is loaded in a web browser the images show up.


Perhaps this could be a summer of code 2007 project? There seems to be a lot of feature requests for how logging is done.

Thank you.

The Pidgin stuff is mostly done in the monotone repository. If you want to
port the patch to that, it'd help me a lot. If you need any assistance from
me, please feel free to IM me.

I have been busy, but I suppose I will put this on hold until the pigin
stuff settles down. I imagine a lot of code changes are around the corner.

Thanks for the hint Richard! I will attempt to address your concerns. I
must admit that most of my experience is with aim. And so I may need the
input/help of others to make this patch useful to other protocols. It is
not my intention to log smiley faces I wasn't aware of the custom ones you
speak of on other protocols.

So as far as naming conventions go I was just going for something that was
simple and had little chance of writing over another file. Wont have any
time to work on this soon, but maybe this weekend.

Glad you took notice of my work :-)

I think you're on the right track. I do have some comments.

image_file_ptr = fopen(path, "w");

You're writing binary data, not text. Change the "w" to "wb" instead.

Regarding this...
fwrite(image_data, 1, image_byte_count, image_file_ptr);

To me, you're writing 1 image of a given size, not a number of 1 byte
blocks ;) I'd change this to, which should still work:
fwrite(image_data, image_byte_count, 1, image_file_ptr);

Please indent your code, and if variables are only used within a given
block, please move the variable definitions there instead. For example:
+if (imgid != 0)
+{
+gaim_imgstore_ref(imgid);
+image = gaim_imgstore_get(imgid);
+image_data = gaim_imgstore_get_data(image);
+image_byte_count =  gaim_imgstore_get_size(image);
+original_filename = gaim_imgstore_get_filename(image);
...

You should be able to move the variable definitions to there instead of
doing them at the top.

I'm not sure how much I like the idea of saving images with the date and
original filename. I think maybe we should be saving them with a file hash
instead. That way, if the same image is embedded multiple times or used
across multiple conversations, we would only save one copy. This is
important for MSN custom emoticons, for example. You should address the
other concerns first, and then I can offer some guidance on making this
change.

Well I have the patch almost working. The output file is slightly
corrupted from the original. I cant figure out why that is happening.
Perhaps another pair of eyes can point out the flaw.

I compiled and tested this with svn from a couple days ago and on a cygwin
windows xp installation. core 2 duo dell laptop.

Please if anyone else is interested in this, take a look at my patch and
try to fix it.

P.S. the formatting isnt up to snuff, but it doesn't work so I wasn't
worried about getting it committed yet.

I would find this feature useful as well.
