InterGif 6.15 distributionsInterGif is available for Acorn RiscOS, for Microsoft Windows (95 and NT) and for Linux. In each case both ready-to-run and source-code distributions are available. The Linux source code will probably also work on other versions of Unix, and other systems altogether -- it just uses ANSI C. InterGif is not currently available for Windows 3.1. It hasn't been tested on Windows 98, ME or 2000, but should work (let me know if not).
The different source distributions are all complete -- they all contain the same files -- but each is built with the specific line-ending and filename rules of its platform.
It's up to you what you do with the source -- but if what you do with it is make bug-fixes or improvements to InterGif, I'd like to request that you send them to me so that this page can always offer the "best" version.

The GIF compression and decompression code is based on the source of the BSD Unix compress(1) command: for full information read the relevant source file in InterGif.
This software is based in part on the work of the Independent JPEG Group (histogram.c and mediancut.c).
The Linux and Windows versions use only the standard C library. The Linux version was compiled with gcc 3.3.3 (make -f makefile.ix). The Windows version was compiled with Visual C++ 5.0 (nmake -f makefile.win): the source should compile just as well with any other version of C, but you may need to edit the makefile.
