     Brush Vectors by Robert Rayment. (Added binary input/output. Fast version, see Help for info on Fast redraw.) This is a vector drawing program using brushes with up to 8 widths, 4 directions, color & transparency. A brush stroke is started with a left-click(or space bar), move mouse to draw & left-click(or space bar) to end it. Each stroke is stored in a vector array which can be saved to a file. Colors can be parked and also saved to a file. The advantage of vectors is that they are full 24-bit color can be stretched/shrunk to a new canavs size. File format can be ASCII (.vec) or binary (.veb). Vec files are usually much smaller than BMP and veb files often smaller than GIF or JPEG. There aren't many aids to drawing yet apart from a fill tool and Shift & Ctrl keying to force vertical & horizontal drawing. So it needs some skill to produce nice pictures. Undo/Redo is almost unlimited, vectors can be deleted from the last drawn or clipped down to the last undo. Deleting any individual vector is not included yet. Important to read the help file to get the most out of this prog. (exe tested on WinXP), Win98, Zip 48KB.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
