    Default Challange: FLC file to BufferedImage

    I want to read a FLC file from the disk and decode it into a BufferedImage.
    The FLC is explained here:
    The FLIC file format
    Before I start:
    How hard is this task in a scale from one to ten(where 10=hardest)?
    Do I need to know assembly programming or anything that isn't Java? I know some basic C++ stuff. Example structs can be replaced with a static class. Unsigned ints can be replaced with long, right? Or I could just use ints for all types.
    What about bit manipulation? Do I need to master that?
    Where do I even start?

    I would look at creating a concrete subclass of ImageReader along with a matching ImageReaderSpi. But before going ahead with that approach, I would take a look at JAI, which I've never used, to see whether it might have some class or classes that may be more easily customized.

    Would ImageReader be necessary? I have seen classes that read animated gifs, pcx, psd etc, they dont use IR class.
