PNG library

Release date: 
Friday, 22 January, 1999



PNG image compression library (libpng) for EMX and kLIBC/GCC environments. Port by different authors.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.
