Anthony's WWW Images (Framed)
Readme and Downloads
The image example documents show all the images available in this collection
to anyone in the world. Any other images in this directory not displayed by
these links are logos and symbols of use only on this server itself.
All the images given pre-converted to the GIF format from
Anthony's Icon Library where they are stored as X bitmaps and X
pixmaps. Please feel free to take a visit and download any and all icons
you find there.
Netscape users can download a displayed image by pressing the rightmost mouse
button over the image so that a menu appears. Users on Macs and PC's do the
same but hold the (only or one) button for a couple of seconds. You can then
select the ``Save Image'' option in this popup menu. For other client users,
some of the images are linked so just selecting the image will (depending on
your client) download the image to a local viewer.
To make downloading these icons easier, I have provided the following
archives of the available WWW icons shown ...
Gzip'ed Tar Archive (.tar.gz) about 330 Kbytes
Official FTP site for AIcons
Directory Indexes to download individual images.
For Mirror Coordinators I have written a small shell script called
"images_mirror" which uses the lynx WWW client to download the
above tar file and automatically unpack it. This will allow you to set up a
`cron job' to automatically download and un-tar these images on a regular
basis for use on your server. The script is VERY simple and you should have
no problem modifying it if necessary.
PC Users please note: The link ``Zip Archive for PC users''
was discontinued because...
While I do not at this time plan to make the ZIP archive available again,
PC users can still de-archive the ``Gziped Tar'' by getting the source to
both the GZip compression program and a Tar Archive Program from...
- Most of my icon collection,
first and foremost, a X Windows Icon Collection, which is UNIX based
where TAR archives are prevalent (ZIP is PC Based not UNIX).
This WWW Collection is a sub-set of that larger collection.
- Zip Archives of GIF files are, on average, 10 times LARGER than
the same GZiped Tar file. For the reason for this look at
GZip'ed Tar Archives vs Zip Archives.
- Filenames used in my collection are longer than the DOS convention file
system of 8 characters plus a 3 character suffix. As such PC users
will, in any case, have problems with files overwriting each other.
Windows 95 will NOT help as it still uses DOS underneath!
