gifburst

The gifburst program takes a named GIF file and breaks it into equal-sized tiles. This is useful if a GIF is too large for your viewer, so you have to look at it in sections.

Usage:

gifburst [-s n] [-p b] gif-file

Memory required:

Proportional to the size of the largest pasted image.

Options:

[-s nnn]
Specify the number of pieces. Valid values are presently 4 (2x2) and 6 (2x3). Default is 4.
[-p nnn]
Specify the number of pixels of overlap between interior boundaries of pieces. Default 20.

Note:

The gifburst program is written on Perl, using the C utilities. You must have both the giflib utilities and Perl installed to run it.
