Description Jonathan Kamens 2004-02-02 09:23:50 EST
When I convert a simple gif file to pnm with giftopnm in the current 
netpbm, I get this message:

giftopnm: Reading Image Sequence 0

There are several problems here:

1) The -image option to giftopnm starts numbering the sequenced 
images from 1, not 0.  This message should be consistent and say 1, 
not 0.

2) This message probably shouldn't appear by default.  It should only 
apear if -verbose is specified.

3) If it must appear by default, there should be a -quiet option to 
make it go away or something.  Redirecting stderr to /dev/null to 
make it go away is bad because then real error messages would also be

Fixed in netpbm-10.19-3 and later, removed the annoying message by
default, only appears when using -verbose.

Also fixed the numbering, now starts with 1 instead of 0.

Read ya, Phil
