Picture Datatype creation package.

In this archive you'll find the necessary tools to build picture datatypes on
aros-i386 native.
The file includes 3 examples :
- BMP datatype taken from nightly builds
- PPM datatype taken from nightly builds
- PNM datatype wich is an extension of PPM datatype wich can read ASCII and

In order to build a datatype the following must be done:
1. Copy the files from tools/ subdirectory to Development/bin/
2. make -f stub
3. make -f
4. make -f install

To create a new datatype (XXX format in following lines), best is to base it on
an existing one.
1. copy src_bmp src_XXX
2. rename the following files:
	- src_XXX/bmp.conf to src_XXX/XXX.conf
	- src_XXX/BMP.dtd to src_XXX/XXX.dtd
	- src_XXX/bmpclass.c to src_XXX/XXXclass.c
3. Modify the files to support the new XXX format
4. copy makefile.bmp to makefile.XXX
Build the datatype as described earlier.
