Subject GIFTranscoder w/o LZW licensing issues
Date Sun, 17 Mar 2002 14:12:57 GMT
Hello all!

I've found a GIFOutputStream (that can turned into a GIFTranscoder) that
does *not* implement the LZW compression.

>From the license:

| Note: This code does *NOT* implement LZW compression. While the output
| of the compression routine is compatible with LZW, only a simple run-
| length compression is performed. The degree of compression as compared
| to LZW is not as high, but execution time is faster, and LZW licensing
| issues are avoided. Depending on image size and image complexity, the
| differences in compression may or may not have practical significance
| for particular applications.

I've sent a mail to Kerry Shetline for asking him a donation to Apache
Foundation of his code.

Any update will be sent to this mailing list!
