Thanks Eli,

I'm using version 6.7.3 Q16 and it covers the functions I need with
the exception of one but using your FFI example it was easy to create
an FFI call to that function.  There are a fair number of new
functions since your FFI was written.  I believe version 7 is going to
change the API significantly for certain functions.  At some point in
time I think I will update your ImageMagick FFI to cover all of the
functions but that could be several years in the future.

I think it should be easy to modify your
