There is. Eclipse built the version of the book code from my directory,
(which I imported from) and not tne one that it copied to my workspace.
The one in my directory still had MULTIPLY mode, not ADD. So I changed
it, and set both the min-sdk and target sdk to Android 2.2. Even with
all three PorterDuff imports, it still won't build at all, saying that
ADD is not a valid field...directly contradicting the developers guide,
which makes even less sense to me than before.
So now, a new question: since PorterDuff's ADD method is clearly not
going to work on all APIs that I want to support, how do I duplicate
that method of adding bitmaps (one being a photo from the camera, the
other being a semi-transparent color filter, just like glass filters on
a 35mm SLR camera)?
And...why doesn't Froyo support what is clearly listed as supported
since API level 1 in the dev guide? They should agree, shouldn't they?

No, I'm not going to explain it. If you can't figure it
out, you didn't want to know anyway... --Larry Wall
