NAME
       giftext - dump GIF pixels and metadata as text

SYNOPSIS
       giftext [-v] [-c] [-e] [-z] [-p]	[-r] [-h] [gif-file]

DESCRIPTION
       A program to dump (text only) general information about GIF file.

       If no GIF file is given,	giftext	will try to read a GIF file from
       stdin.

OPTIONS
       -v
	   Verbose mode	(show progress). Enables printout of running scan
	   lines.

       -c
	   Dumps the color maps.

       -e
	   Dumps encoded bytes - the pixels after compressed using LZ
	   algorithm and chained to form bytes.	This is	the form the data is
	   saved in the	GIF file. Dumps	in hex - 2 digit per byte.

       -z
	   Dumps the LZ	codes of the image. Dumps in hex - 3 digits per	code
	   (as we are limited to 12 bits).

       -p
	   Dumps the pixels of the image. Dumps	in hex - 2 digit per pixel
	   (<=byte).

       -r
	   Dumps raw pixels as one byte	per pixel. This	option inhibits	all
	   other options and only the pixels are dumped. This option may be
	   used	to convert GIF files into raw data. Note: the color map	can be
	   extracted by	gifclrmp utility. If more than one image is included
	   in the file,	all images will	be dumped in order.

       -h
	   Print one line of command line help,	similar	to Usage above.
