      giflib - GIFLIB utilities

      GIFLIB is a linkable service library and a set of utilities for
      processing images encoded using GIF (Graphics Interchange Format).

      These utilities are not intended to compete with or replace
      multi-format graphics toolkits like ImageMagick or the Python Imaging
      Library, or graphics editors such as the GIMP. Find one of those, or
      an equivalent, if you need to crop, scale, rotate, toggle interlacing,
      or perform other conventional image transformations. Rather, these are
      intended to facilitate GIF-specific operations which multi-format
      tools may not adequately support.

      API documentation for the service library is best viewed through a
      browser at the project website:

      gif2raw(1), gif2rgb(1), gifbuild(1), gifecho(1), giffix(1),
      gifinto(1), giftext(1), giftool(1), gifclrmap(1).
