GBM.DLL 1.61 and GBM command line tools
The Generalised Bitmap Module (GBM) is a library capable of loading and saving bitmap files in a variety of popular and less popular bitmap file formats. Programs may be written to use this code, and thus be able to access a variety of file formats without actually knowing what format the
pictures are in, or any details about file format itself. It comes with a useful set of command line bitmap manipulation tools.

Get package or the WarpIN installation package from Hobbes (see below).

Enhanced GBMV/GBMV2 Version 1.52
GBMV2 is a fast and simple bitmap viewer and editor for the OS/2 and eCS Presentation Manager. GBMV is a simple bitmap viewer.

Get package or the WarpIN installation package from Hobbes (see below).

Notes for eComStation 1.2/1.2R users:
Please read the installation instructions. eCS 1.2/1.2R ships with an old GBM.DLL (1.12) which prevents loading of the new GBM.DLL (1.61). Please follow the instructions to use the new GBM.DLL for all programs as well as for eCS WPS features like bitmap previews.
