Description
-----------
cAMIra is a small webcam software that uses VHI drivers.
It can be used with a MUI interface or as a command line tool.
Images can regularly be captured locally in dynamic folders and/or
uploaded to a FTP server as JPEG or PNG file.
A dynamic text can be printed in the images.


Requirements
------------
- compiled for 68020 or better
- AmigaOS 2.0.4 or newer
- other components may have higher processor and/or OS requirements
- a video hardware with VHI driver
- a TCP/IP stack (optional, for upload to FTP servers)
- MUI (optional, for the graphical user interface)
- guigfx.library (optional, to display images, requires AmigaOS >= 3.0)
- jpeg.library (optional, to generate JPEG images)
- expat.library (optional, to load xml config files)

The program was developed and tested on an Amiga 4000 with 68060
processor, AmigaOS 3.9 and my Poseidon quickcamexpress.vhi driver.


Installation
------------
Currently, just copy the program where you want.
If you speak one of the supported languages, copy also your catalog file.


Usage
-----
Sorry, documentation is still missing.
But I hope, it is simple enough to give it a try.
Use cAMIra ? to print the arguments template. All the options can 
also be used as ToolType.
