in reply to LZW Demystified

According to the League for Programming Freedom, "The United States LZW patent expired on June 20th, 2003. According to Unisys, the counterpart Canadian patent expires July 7, 2004, the counterpart patents in the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy expire June 18, 2004, and the Japanese counterpart patents expire June 20, 2004."

So perhaps the time is near to put GIF support back into the current version of GD.

It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
