**What is an algorithm?**

An algorithm is a list of well-defined instructions for completing a task, such as computing an average value. Starting from an initial state, the instructions describe a computation that proceeds through a well-defined, though not necessarily deterministic, series of successive states, eventually terminating in a final ending state. |

1999-12-22 | Image rotation algorithm series 32000 GraphicsFast image rotation of 90 and 270 is important in printer applications, since both portrait and landscape orientation printing may be desired. With a fast image rotation algorithm, only the portrait orientation fonts need to be stored. This, in turn, minimizes ROM storage requirements. This application note shows a fast image rotation algorithm that may be used to rotate an 8 pixel-by-8 line image. Larger image sizes may be rotated by successive application of the rotation primitive. |
