 I am working on a 2d interface and find the process pretty straight
forward. However, I want to jazz it up a bit by drawing lines that
appear to "glow". That is, lines that will be white in the middle and

as the outer glow effect.

Is this possible as part of the standard API? If not, I guess the
solution might be to extend the class so that it draws lines along

1. Extract list for android market?

I'm looking to create a backup/restore application for Android that
uses an applications list to basically record what is installed (as
opposed to merely saving the installed applications to the SD card on
a device).  The scope of this application would basically be to
install a list of applications.  (Those that work with APT packaging
on Debian Linux and derived, note that a restore would be the Android
equivalent of 'cat list-of-packages | aptitude install'.)

The idea is this - restoring the installed applications from the SD
card does not restore it into the market, so if there are updates, you
don't get them without help.  (That, and I've had Market forget my
list when I did a master reset once.)  Second, of course, is that a
text list takes up much less room than a bunch of application

Here's the rub: I can't find a way to extract that list.

In a word: HELP!
