       gifrotat - A program to rotate a GIF image by a specified angle.


       gifrotat -a Angle [-q] [-s Width Height] [-h] gif-file

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


       Screen (of source image).


       -a Angle

               Specifies the angle to rotate in degrees with respect to the  X
              (horizontal) axis.

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

       [-s Width Height]

               Since the rotated image will have the same image  size  as  the
              original,  some parts of the image will by clipped out and lost.
              By specifying a (bigger) size explicitly using the ā€˜-sā€™  option,
              these parts may be saved.

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


       The  image  is rotated around its center.  No filtering is performed on
       the output, which have the same color map as the input.  This is mainly
       since   filtering  would  require  color  quantization  which  is  very
       memory/time intensive and out of MSDOS memory  limits  even  for  small
