address@hidden Batch mode for changing GIFs in place.
address@hidden Prints detailed information about GIFs, including comments.
address@hidden Control over interlacing, comments, looping, transparency...
address@hidden Creates well-behaved GIFs: removes redundant colors, only uses 
local color
+tables if it absolutely has to (local color tables waste space and can cause
+viewing artifacts), etc.
address@hidden It can shrink colormaps and change images to use the Web-safe 
palette (or
+any colormap you choose).
address@hidden Optimize your animations!  This stores only the changed portion 
of each
+frame, and can radically shrink your GIFs.  You can also use transparency to
+make them even smaller.  Gifsicle's optimizer is pretty powerful, and usually
+reduces animations to within a couple bytes of the best commercial optimizers.
address@hidden Unoptimizing animations, which makes them easier to edit.
address@hidden itemize
+Two other programs are included with Gifsicle: @code{gifview} is a lightweight
+animated-GIF viewer which can show animations as slideshows or in real time,
+and @code{gifdiff} compares two GIFs for identical visual appearance.")
