Reading a Gif file
I have a set of gif files(images) which contain some formatted text information. Is there any way(API ot something else) in which I can read the contents of these files and write it to a flat file. It would be an added advantage if in case i can retrieve the formatting information also.
Thanks in advance

Re: Reading a Gif file
I dont believe so. If you even tried to open the image in a graphics program, depending on how
the image was made, you may still not even be able to read the text as text.
