+  cbrPager (c) 2004- - John Coppens
+  --------
+
+This is a simple pager, written out because I did not want to dedicate
+the huge Java resources just to page through images.
+
+It's released under the General Public License. The exact details are
+contained in the COPYING document included.
+
+As it is, the executable is only about 100 kB, and has the following
+features:
+
+	- It does 'cbr', 'cbz' and 'cb7' files - I haven't encountered
+	  any other types of archives yet. Maybe someone will come up 
+	  with cbz2?
+
+	- It decodes 'jpg' and 'jpeg' images, and should do gifs
+	  and pngs.
+
+	- When paging, it tries to be logical, going to the top
+	  of the next page and bottom of the previous page (settable).
+
+	- You can zoom in and out
+
+Notes:
+
+I'm not a very great reader of comic books, I just encountered one I
+liked and was then surprised that I could not locate a native reader 
+for the format. It seemed a nice challenge, and some problems did
+arise from unsuspected corners. Later I found that this format is 
+quite usable to group scanned documents...
+
+So, I hope it's useful to someone.
+
+Greetings,

+Generating RPMs
+---------------
+  Several people asked me to generate an RPM. My distro (Slackware) doesn't
+know rpms. Emmanuel Seyman seyman[at]wanadoo.fr, sent me a specfile
+which can be used to generate an rpm, using the command:
+
+	rpmbuild -tb cbrpager-x.y.z.tar.gz
+
+where x.y.z is, of course, the right version. Though I offered to add
+an rpm to the package, according to Emmanuel, this is not as easy as it
+seems, as even rpms are not the same for each distribution.
+
+
+
+Usage
+-----
+  It's not too difficult to use cbrPager, I guess. At least I've tried
+to keep it as simple as possible.
+
+  Though it can be used just as a GUI for reading cbr/cbz/cb7 archives,
+since 0.9.8, it can also be used as a viewer for many file managers such as
+Midnight Commander or Rox, because it can now receive the name of the file
+to be opened as a command line parameter.
+
+  From that version on, it is also permitted to have a mix of image
+formats inside the archive (at first, cbrPager needed all of the images
+to be of the same type).
