Hi!

I need to read some image file (or make one) and output to a .ico file,
but I don't know how to write an .ico file.

Please note: I don't need to write .ico files consisting of several images!

Are there any documentation (fileformat explanation) or examples to how I might convert an image to a .ico file?

Some sources say making a .ico = renaming a .bmp. Although I doubt that's the correct solution in most cases (?)

Is it possible to convert i.e. a .gif to a .ico with transparency?


Any help appreciated!

Time is sometimes the best tool...
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
