Description
===========
  DIC stands for "Data Image Compress" and is an algorythm
  to compress data into images. PNG is used as output-format,
  therefore the executable-name is "dicpng".

  - The png-image of a compressed data can be shown like any other png-image.
  - The compression-ratio is nearly that of LHA, depends on data. Seems to
    have nice ratios on binaries but bad on text-files.
  - The input-data is threaded in a special way to gain a better ratio.
  - The info for decompression is stored as a png-tag.

Requirements
============
  - AmigaOS 3.x

Installation
============
