There's no need to shout, thank you.

We require the source code for Gimp to use the program in our application.

The source code can be downloaded through CVS. Please consult on how to do this.

I am not sure what you mean with 'in our application'. If you are going to use (parts of) the GIMP in your own program and then distribute that program, please realize that your program then automatically becomes freely distributable according to our licence, the GNU General Public License.

This may or may not be what you want.

We want to convert the images to XPM format .We are windows users It was said that we can use Vc for using Gimp in our own programs.

VC is Virtual Computing? That should be possible.

If you just need the GIMP functionality, though: making a Windows build is possible and there is also a ready made Windows build available at , complete with
installer and all.

Also, for just converting images, ImageMagick is recommend generally. ImageMagick is a set of command line utilities for several operating systems, among which Windows, which can be used to batch process many images for conversion or modification.

You can find ImageMagick at . It can convert between 68 different image file formats, among which XPM and several RAW formats that your application should be able to generate easily.

HTH,

Kind regards,
