Iconverter is a tool for converting old icons so they look as intended
on Amigas running a more recent operating system.

In particular Iconverter will convert OS 1.x and MagicWB icons to
WB 3.1.4 and higher ColorIcons format using the palette those icons
were created for. (Also OS 2.0 - 3.1 icons, but those usually look
correct without
conversion.)

More generally, Iconverter can read regular "planar" icons, NewIcons
and ColorIcons, and write NewIcons, ColorIcons and BMP files, so the
program can also be used to for instance convert NewIcons to ColorIcons or
ColorIcons to NewIcons. Or convert icons to BMP images for further editing
in a graphics program.

Note that you need to run the NewIcons extension or the new IconLib_46 on
an AmigaOS 3.0 or 3.1 system in order to see the converted version of icons
created by Iconverter. AmigaOS 3.1.4 and 3.2 will show them "out of the
box".

Iconverter is a shell / command line tool written in standard C. As such,
it's possible to compile and run the program on any Amiga or non-Amiga
system.
