readbitmap: Read bitmap images (BMP,JPEG,PNG) without external dependencies

Identifies and reads Windows BMP, JPEG and PNG format bitmap images. Identification defaults to the use of a magic embedded in the file rather than the file extension. jpeg and png packages depend on libjpg and libpng libraries but these are nearly always present on unix-like systems.

Version: 0.1-2
Depends: bmp, jpeg, png
Suggests: pixmap, testthat
