SQZGIF v2.1 (c) Copr. 1988-90 Lawrence & Marvin Gozum, MD

SQZGIF converts LARGE GIF and PCX pics (to 2KBx2KBx256) and "squeezes" it
down to 320x200x256 in .BLD & .PLT format or GIF or expands it to any
size (e.g.,1024x768x256) for:

* image processing/editing in VGACAD
* conversion to EGA in VGA2EGA
* printing in GIFDOT
* desktop publishing with GIFPUB
* reconversion to a smaller GIF in BLD2GIF
* bloading in BASIC or QuickBASIC (BLD & PLT files only)

Update 2.1 * User-specified zooming or squeezed GIF & PCX pictures.

* Choice of fast interpolation or color averaging methods.

* Integration of SQZGIF v2.1 (and up) with VGACAD (2.0 and
up, when released) for immediate importing of user-
specified, 'squeezed' or 'zoomed', color-averaged or
interpolated screens.

Update 2.0: * PCX (version 5) format included (to 2KBx2KBx256)

* BUGFIX: (MAJOR) All SVGA processing used weird colors,
if 320x200x256 mode was not processed first. This has
been corrected !

* BUGFIX: (MAJOR) 800x600x256 and 1024x768x256 SVGA
processing modes 'choked' and gave inappropriate error
messages. These have been fixed.

* Bugfix: VDISK path did not change to next available
path; this has been corrected.

* Bugfix: MVGASCRN.RAW & .PLT files were not automatically
deleted when processing was aborted; this has been fixed.

* Feedback on alternative VDISK path selectd is displayed
to let the user know where the MVGASCRN (RAW & PLT) files
are being written.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
