+Developer's Image Library (DevIL), formerly called OpenIL, is a programmer's
+library to develop applications with very powerful image loading capabilities,
+yet is easy for a developer to learn and use. Ultimate control of images is
+left to the developer, so unnecessary conversions, etc. are not performed.
+DevIL utilizes a simple, yet powerful, syntax. DevIL can load, save, convert,
+manipulate, filter and display a wide variety of image formats.
+Currently, DevIL can load .bmp, .cut, .dds, .doom, .gif, .ico, .jpg, .lbm,
+.mdl, .mng, .pal, .pbm, .pcd, .pcx, .pgm, .pic, .png, .ppm, .psd, .psp, .raw,
+.sgi, .tga and .tif .hdr files.
+Formats supported for saving include .bmp, .dds, .h, .jpg, .pal, .pbm, .pcx,
+.hdr, .pgm,.png, .ppm, .raw, .sgi, .tga and .tif.
+DevIL currently supports the following APIs for display: OpenGL, Windows GDI,
+SDL, DirectX and Allegro. Compilers that can compile DevIL or use it include
+Djgpp, MSVC++, Linux gcc, Delphi, Visual Basic, Power Basic and Dev-C++.
