Introduction

Gif Indexer was written because of another program that I sell
called Picture Puzzle. Picture Puzzle uses .GIF, .PCX, and .PUZ files to
run and at this time only supports certain resolutions. Many people have
their graphics files all in one directory. It is hard to remember which
pictures have which resolutions. So, I created Gif Indexer. This program
will create a report either on the screen or to a file that will show
all the files, sorted by name, with the Horizontal and Vertical resolutions,
number of colors, and the file size for each file.


Command Line Options

Gif Indexer has a couple command line options. If you just type Gifndx in
your current directory then Gif Indexer will produce a sorted list of all the
Gif files, then all the PCX files and then all the PUZ files (Puz files are
files used with my program Picture Puzzle.) And the output will be to the
screen. If you follow Gifndx on the command line with a filename then a report
will be written that contains the list of files and their resolutions and
sizes. (I.E. Gifndx report.txt). The report files would look like something
like this:

Files processed: Gif= 4, Pcx= 1, Puz= 0, Report File = report.txt


You can also add a third command line option which will give a different
report output then this one. If you don't want the GIF, PCX, and PUZ files all
sorted separately then just type the following: GIFNDX Report.txt 2. The 2
tells GIFNDX to do the following report:

Notice to Sysops

I found this indexer to be helpful to me as a sysop also because I use it
to do a report of the graphics files in my New Uploads directory. I can then
take the report and go back into the file descriptions and add the files
resolution to the description.

Operation

Gif Indexer is very easy to use. Just place the file gifndx.exe
in a directory that is located in the DOS path. Then connect to the directory
that you want to index. Type gifndx and an index will be created of the
graphics files in that directory on the screen. If you put a filename on the
command line then Gif Indexer will write the output to that file. I.E.

Gifndx report.ndx

After running the program the file report.ndx file will look
something like this: (Different filenames of course).

Special Thanks

I want to thank Harvey Peretson for the messages he sent me on
the RIME Shareware Conference giving me the idea to write this utility.
Harvey mentioned that he had lots of GIF pictures all in one directory
and didn't know which ones would work with Picture Puzzle.

Thanks Harvey

Well enjoy the program and please get back to me with any changes or
added features you would like to see. I am willing to upgrade the program
and will continue to do so as long as I know people are willing to tell
me what they want in it.

History ->

5/19/91 - Added carriage returns to the report files so that the file
would print correctly to a printer.

5/19/91 - Check for the existence of a report filename before I open one.
If the file exists I ask if I should overwrite or get a
different name.

5/19/91 - Check for invalid gif, pcx and puz files and write Invalid
filename in the list instead of the resolution of the file.
