Thanks so much to all that replied. The names are to many so I will not
mention. The original message read,

> Hello,

> and where can they be obtained if they are?
> We currently run SunOS 4.1.3_U1 on a 4/75 (SPARCstation 2).

Most answers suggested a utility, available from many ftp sites, known as
xv 3.00. Some others recomended pbmplus and ImageMagick. From the way it
sounds xv is more interactive and pbmplus is toolbox-style (thank you Mr.
Lessert). Pbmplus sounds more powerful, but I guess xv can also do some
things that pbmplus cannot.

Again thanks to everone who so "generously" and politely offered help.
Sorry to the one person who thought the question was not quite up to par to
be put on the list, but it was an emergency (viscous prof.) and I consider
it a sun-manager question since I was designated sun-manager (yuck) and am
supposed to setup the system correctly.

Hope to help you all back,

Derrick Hongerholt
