I have a little something needs doing - I need to use xv's ability to
"autocrop" files. It's possible to make xv do this from the command line
when it loads a file, but I want to save the cropped file. xv can also
save files, but it is not scriptable, and I have thousands of files which
need cropping. So, if any of you are familiar with the xv source (or are
interested in becoming familiar with it) and would like to earn a few
pounds, drop me a private mail.
BTW neither netpbm nor ImageMagick do what I need (yes, they both crop,
and IM even has what it calls autocrop but it's not functionally the same
as xv) so don't bother suggesting them.
