GD is Tom Boutell's (www.boutell.com) graphic designer package.  Lincoln
Stein worked with Tom on porting it to Perl many moons ago.  Version 1.1.9
is the last version to support GIF images - which is still available at CPAN
and at Tom's site.  Since then, it uses PNG's and probably some other
formats.  I use it to make graphics on the fly.
