Libungif: a library for using uncompressed GIFs.
<here goes the ldesc>
"The libungif package contains a shared library of functions for
loading and saving GIF format image files. The libungif library can
load any GIF file, but it will save GIFs only in uncompressed format
(i.e., it won't use the patented LZW compression used to save "normal"
compressed GIF files)."
This gets my vote, btw.
Unfortunately I came up with no ldesc... the one on the site is way too
long and I don't consider myself a skilled enough english writer to
write an official text =P
Anyone has ideas?
Maybe tomorrow I could think something.
Anyway libungif is useful to me to package imlib, which is useful to me
to package freeciv with gtk support... but it's a good library to read
GIF and to create uncompressed gif: it is so patent-unencumebered.
I think cygwin shouldn't go without it 0=)
