'GIF' (tm) is CompuServe's standard for defining generalized color raster images. This 'Graphics Interchange Format' allows high-quality, high-resolution graphics to be displayed on a variety of graphics hardware and is intended as an exchange and display mechanism for graphics images. The image format described in this document is designed to support current and future image technology and will in addition serve as a basis for future CompuServe graphics products.The main focus of this document is to provide the technical information necessary for a programmer to implement GIF encoders and decoders. As such, some assumptions are made as to terminology relavent to graphics and programming in general.
