       gifinto  - A program to save stdin into a file with given name, iff the
       result file has size bigger than specified (see below).   This  can  be
       used to save result in same files name we started a chain of pipes.


       gifinto [-q] [-s MinFileSize] [-h] gif-file

       Gifinto always reads a GIF file from stdin.




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

       [-s MinFileSize]

               If file is less than MinFileSize, it is deleted and not renamed
              to  given  name.   This will prevent killing the file we started
              with if the result is an empty file, or  the  pipeline  did  not

              The  default  file  threshold size is 14 bytes which is 1 bigger
              than GIF file stamp (6 bytes) and GIF file screen descriptor  (7
              bytes),  so a GIF file with only GIF stamp and screen descriptor
              will not be renamed.

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