Hi...
I need to calculate the length of data in a GIF-File (including header). Since the GIF is linked into another file. I do NOT need to display it, i simply need the effective length/size of the code (to find next data behind it) and X/Y/C as the case maybe.
thanx :)

It's linked using COPY /B FILE.DBX + FILE.GIF into a binary file.

I can calculate the Length of the DBX-Data and I can find the Start-Byte of the GIF. But I don't know where the last GIF-Byte is. So actually I can't link any other Data into the DBX after the GIF
