Here is a program that will take BBS "ansi" files, and create
graphical output in either gif, png, or eps formats.
It will even create animated gifs of animated ansis. Blinking
ansis also can be created as animated gifs.
I released version 0.11.0 on 15 January 2016
It moves animated gif support to libgd, and adds support
for creating movie (mpg/mp4) file output.
I released version 0.10.0 on 6 January 2014.
It adds support for 256-color and 24-bit color ANS files.
I released version 0.9.14 on 19 January 2012.
It has some minor cleanups, plus support for ysize auto scaling.
I released version 0.9.13 on 17 August 2007.
It now supports eps (encapsulated postscript).
I also merged the separate PNG and GIF packages back into one.
I released version 0.9.12 on 18 October 2004.
It fixes some minor buffer overruns on both.
NOTE! You need the "gd" gif library to compile ansi2gif.
Either install your distribution's copy (apt-get install libgd-dev)
or obtain it yourself from
the official GD page.
