This file contains a short overview of DISPLAY and the files you need.
It includes a list of files that you should read.
DISPLAY can view, convert, manipulate, read and write images and movies.
It can create movies and slide-shows. DISPLAY supports a wide variety of
graphic and movie formats (8-24 bit). With the image manipulation tools,
it's more than just a viewer/converter.
To use all options you will need both, dispXXXa.zip and dispXXXb.zip.
Be sure to use the directory tree option for unpacking (i.e. pkunzip -d)

Most people won't need the dispXXXb.zip, but if you want to create contact-
sheets you'll need the fonts.
It's highly recommended to read display.doc (the file is short and not well
written but you'll learn many useful things about display). It is located in
the doc\ subdirectory. You can use an editor or lister or use the F1 key.
There is another important files you should read: display.faq
If you want to change the configuration of display take a look inside the
config.dis file. Although you can change most things from inside display
you'll understand some things much better, if you've read the comments in
the configuration file.
