DESCRIPTION

        PicCon is a "programmer's pictureconverter". That is, it
        is not in the usual 'packed format -> packed format' style,
        but it is a program that convert packed pictures to RAW
        format, ready for inclusion in programs you are writing.
        Parts of pictures might also be cut out and saved.

        Features:
        * uses datatypes.library (with the appropriate datatypes
         installed, you can load JPEGs, GIFs, or any other format)
        * handles AGA pictures
        * palettesaving in many formats (ECS/OCS, AGA, ECS/OCS/AGA
         copperlists, ++)
        * RAW saving in numerous formats (bitplane, interleaved,
         chunky, sprites (including AGA sprites) ++)
        * choice of saving as binary or source (both assembly and C)
        * screenmoderequester
        * correct handling of HAM6, HAM8, EHB and dual playfields
        * some nice timesaving features, like autocrop, flipping ++

        Note: the 1.02 demoversion contains a bug that makes 5
        Enforcer-hits, these are not dangerous. This is fixed
        in the registrated version (which is free for any Mungwall-
        or Enforcer-hits whatsoever).

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

        As the datatypes.library is used for loading the pictures,
        you need version 3.0 (or later) of the operating system.
        The program do work on rekicked machines (AGA chipset is
        not needed).
