       gifhisto - A program to create histogram of number of pixels using each color.  The output
       can be formatted into a GIF histogram file, or as text file - both go to stdout.


       gifhisto [-q] [-t] [-s Width Height] [-n ImageNumber] [-b] [-h] gif-file

       If no gif-file is given, GifHisto will try to read a GIF file from stdin.





               Quiet mode.  Default off on MSDOS, on under UNIX.  Controls  printout  of  running
              scan lines.  Use -q- to invert.


               Force  output  to  be  text file of the following form: (colormap size) lines each
              containing two integers: number of times color appeared, and  color  index.   Lines
              are  in  increasing  color  index  order. This output can be fed directly to a sort
              program if ordering by color frequency is desired.

              The colrmap picked is the one to be used for the image to generate  histogram  for,
              as defined in GIF format.

       [-s Width Height]

               Size  of  GIF  histogram  file.   The Height of the histogram should be power of 2
              dividable by number of colors in colormap.

              Width sets the resolution (accuracy if you like) of the histogram  as  the  maximum
              histogram bar is scaled to fit it.

       [-n ImageNumber]

               Image number to test.  Default is one.


               Zeros  the  background  color  count.  As only linear scale bars are supported and
              usually the background appears much more often  then  other  colors,  deleting  the
              background count will improve the scaling of other colors.


               Print one line of command line help, similar to Usage above.
