Read Me

= GIFLIB =

This is the README file of GIFLIB, a library for manipulating GIF files.

Latest versions of GIFLIB are currently hosted at:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/giflib

== Overview ==

GIF is a legacy format; we recommend against generating new images in
it.  For a cleaner, more extensible design with better color support
and compression, look up PNG.

giflib provides code for reading GIF files and transforming them into 
RGB bitmaps, and for writing RGB bitmaps as GIF files.

The (permissive) open-source license is in the file COPYING.

You will find build instructions in build.asc

You will find full documentation of the API in doc/ and on the 
project website.

The project has a long and confusing history, described in history.asc

The project to-do list is in TODO.
