This is a plattform independent iff animation player library, a class written
in C++. It can be compiled and linked with it's header file to a project. You
may also compile it as a separate library

Read "iffanim.h" for usage and further information.

Following compression modes can be decoded:
 0,5,7,8,74('J')
 -> I didn't find animation files with other modes (1,2,3,4,6). It could be
    implemented, if someone provides useable sample files and the support is
    requested.

- supports wave tracer ds sound chunks 8/16 bit mono/stereo
- Compression method 1,2,3,4,6 are not supported because no animation testfile
  could be found.

Each pixel in the data is a pixel in the output. Consider that the pixel aspect
ratio may not be correct for 1:1 pixel aspect ratio screens, because the Amiga
has video modes with different aspect ratios.
It's not sure, if an animation was made for a full amiga screen and the pixel
ratio is not stored in a file normally. (Correct me, if I'm wrong.) The player
should provide scaling.
