  DIC stands for "Data Image Compress" and is an algorythm
  to compress data into images. PNG is used as output-format,
  therefore the executable-name is "dicpng".

  - The png-image of a compressed data can be shown like any other png-image.
  - The compression-ratio is nearly that of LHA, depends on data. Seems to
    have nice ratios on binaries but bad on text-files.
  - The input-data is threaded in a special way to gain a better ratio.
  - The info for decompression is stored as a png-tag.

  - AmigaOS 4.x
  - png.library
  - z.library

  Copy the executable to C:

  dicpng does only work from a shell.


  IN/A - Input filname
  OUT  - Output filename

  dicpng ram:test                 - Compress ram:test to ram:test.png
  dicpng ram:test.png             - Uncompress ram:test.png to ram:test
  dicpng ram:test.png OUT ram:out - Uncompress ram:test.png to ram:out

  WARNING: The output-file is overwriten without prompt!
