OK, so somebody already mentioned a shear-trick, if you're interested in how
it looks like you can fetch:
The program loads an image and pseudo-rotates it using combinations of
horizontal and vertical shears (skews). Just move your mouse around to see
it. On small rotations (only 2 skews) I get arount 45fps on P3/933. For
rotations up to 90degrees (5 skews) it drops down to 30fps.
The program will work only in 32bps (see lines 109 and 118, where the
pointers should be cast depending on the pixeldepth), because I was too lazy
to do it properly (you should make depth switch in the beginning of the
function and repeat the loops with different casts; you don't want to make
switch within the loop).
Is it faster than yours ?
