Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 114756
inaccurate, useless debug message from giftopnm with no way to turn it off
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:13:28 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,
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
