rpng/rpng2/wpng are the demo programs that accompany O'Reilly's 'PNG: The Definitive Guide.'
rpng is a simple file viewer with the ability to set a background color when displaying transparent PNGs.
rpng2 is a progressive PNG viewer, designed to work like a web browser (though it contains no network code); it can generate a background image when displaying transparent PNGs.
wpng is a simple converter from NetPBM to PNG format; in most respects it is much more limited than pnmtopng, but it supports interactive entry of PNG text annotations and will generate noninterlaced PNGs on the fly (rather than buffering the entire image first like pnmtopng).
The viewers include simple front ends for both X and Win32; the converter is a command-line app that compiles on Unix, Windows, and probably other platforms.
What's New in This Release:
· This release fixes the handling of truncated or partly unreadable image files, and tweaks the display of the usage screen to make error messages more noticeable.
