|: I can't find the giftoppm ptogram which is required for the Web browser
|: in xemacs 19.13. The FAQ says it should be included in netpbm package,
|: but IT IS NOT THERE ! I tried 2 distributions : netpbm-1mar94.tar
|: and netpbm-1mar94.p1.tar. The only gif-handling program there
|: is giftopnm. I tried netscape search, got a lot of addresses which all
|: point to the same 2 distributions. Does somebody know where in the world
|: is giftoppm or maybe it is possible to replace it by giftopnm ?
|: Thank you !
|giftopnm is a more general version of the program that would otherwise be
|called giftoppm. PNM means Portable aNy Map, whereas ppm means portable
|pixmap. In essence, if your gif file has only black and white, giftopnm
|won't write a P6 or P3 style pnm, it will write the black and white format
|(I forget what this one is called).
|In summary, use it without fear.
In any case, 19.14 will have built-in GIF support, so getting this
to work should be much easier.
