       gifclip  -  A program to clip images in GIF files.  Only one image in a
       GIF file can be modified at a time.   Neither  the  image  position  on
       screen     nor    the    screen    size    is    modified    (use    <a


       gifclip [-q] [-i Xmin Ymin Xmax Ymax] [-n n Xmin Ymin Xmax  Ymax]  [-c]
       [-h] gif-file

       If  no  gif-file  is  given,  GifClip  will try to read a GIF file from




               Quiet mode.  Default off on MSDOS,  on  under  UNIX.   Controls
              printout of running scan lines.  Use -q- to invert.

       [-i Xmin Ymin Xmax Ymax]

               Clip  first  image  to  the  dimensions  as  specified by the 4
              coordinates (Xmin Ymin Xmax Ymax) of a box clipping region.

              For example: ’-i 11 22 33 44’ will crop the box  from  top  left
              [11,22] to bottom right [33,44] out of the first image.

              If  the  first  parameter is bigger than third one (Xmin > Xmax)
              they are swapped.  Same for Y.

              The dimensions of the clipped image must be confined to original
              image  width  and  height.  Note the clipped image includes both
              the min & max boundary; an image of width W can have coordinates
              0 to W-1 (zero based).

              Only one of -i or -n can be specified.

       [-n n Xmin Ymin Xmax Ymax]

               Same  as  -i above but for the nth image: ‘-n 1 11 22 33 44’ is
              exactly the same as the example in -i.  Only one of -i or -n can
              be specified.

               Complement.   This  removes horizontal and/or vertical bands of
              the image. For example ‘-c -i 638  3  658  13’  would  remove  a
              horizontal band 11 pixels deep beginning at raster line 3, and a
              vertical band 21 pixels right beginning at pixel 658.

               Print one line of command line help, similar to Usage above.

              Note: all coordinates are 0-based --- the top left corner is (0,
