what is it?
===========

Ida is a small and fast image viewer, motif-based.  For people who
don't want the KDE/GNOME overhead.  Some basic editing functions are
available too.


build
=====

Check the INSTALL file for detailed build instructions.

ida uses Motif 2.x features (utm, render tables).  This means you need
openmotif, lesstif does *not* cut it.

It also uses the usual graphics libraries (libtiff, libpng, libjpeg,
...), you should have them installed to get support for these image
formats.


usage
=====

There is a manual page, check it out.


what "ida" stands for?
======================

It is just a name.  The utility used to be named "iv" for "Image
Viewer", but that gave lots of name clashes.  Its very likely that
people name such a tool "iv", it is also used as shortcut for
InterViews (remember Sun's Open Windows?).  So i decided to rename it.

I looked for a short name starting with 'i' in a list for children
first names.  I like "ida", so I picked this one.  It is a old, german
name.


Have fun,

  Gerd
