Description of the encoding scheme
The implementation: res2image
(The implementation from the download link below is in C.
This is not maintained at present. I recommend that
you use the alternative implementation in Java.)
Frank Nusselder spent countless hours helping me with
graphical formats and the intricacies of C and makefiles.
I am indebted to Michel Mudde for intensive discussions
in the early stages of developing the encoding
I'm also grateful to many other people who contributed to
this work, among whom are
Jaap van Dijk,
and Filip Vervloesem.
