QImageFormat - Incremental image decoder for a specific image format
virtual int decode ( QImage & img, QImageConsumer * consumer, const uchar * buffer, int
length ) = 0
The QImageFormat class is an incremental image decoder for a specific image format.
By making a derived class of QImageFormatType, which in turn creates objects that are a
subclass of QImageFormat, you can add support for more incremental image formats, allowing
such formats to be sources for a QMovie or for the first frame of the image stream to be
loaded as a QImage or QPixmap.
Your new subclass must reimplement the decode() function in order to process your new
New QImageFormat objects are generated by new QImageFormatType factories.

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
int QImageFormat::decode ( QImage & img, QImageConsumer * consumer, const uchar * buffer, int
length ) [pure virtual]
New subclasses must reimplement this method.
It should decode some or all of the bytes from buffer into img, calling the methods of
consumer as the decoding proceeds to inform that consumer of changes to the image. The
length of the data is given in length. The consumer may be 0, in which case the function
should just process the data into img without telling any consumer about the changes. Note
that the decoder must store enough state to be able to continue in subsequent calls to
this method - this is the essence of the incremental image loading.
The function should return without processing all the data if it reaches the end of a
frame in the input.
The function must return the number of bytes it has processed.
