     png - Portable Network Graphics format


     The png library contains functions dealing with files in the PNG format.
     PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is an extensible file format for the
     lossless, portable, well-compressed storage of raster images. PNG pro-
     vides a patent-free replacement for GIF and can also replace many common
     uses of TIFF. Indexed-colour, grayscale, and truecolour images are sup-
     ported, plus an optional alpha channel. Sample depths range from 1 to 16

     PNG is designed to work well in online viewing applications, such as the
     World Wide Web, so it is fully streamable with a progressive display op-
     tion. PNG is robust, providing both full file integrity checking and
     fast, simple detection of common transmission errors. Also, PNG can
     storegamma and chromaticity data for improved colour matching on hetero-
     geneous platforms.
