searching for a GIF decoder

I'm searching for a C++ GIF decoder; I prefer it to be simple and don't need any special options like reading several frames from one file or having to deal with gamma settings or anything that improves quality or so.
The only funtionality I require from it is to read width and height and a buffer containing the RGB (or YUV) values from the pixel data.

Thanks in advance

Have a look at this article.  It probably contains more information than you need, since it describes exactly why it does what it does, but it does look very complete - and even contains information for two platforms (Mac & Windows).

Thanks, it looks quite interesting but I'm more looking for finished code containing a getbits funtion or similar, implementing GIF support is not the goal in my program, only displaying a particular image.
A guide how to program it is nice but I'm sure there must be freely downloadable c++ libraries which give this support.
It only needs to run in Windows btw, the rest of the program is already incompatible with Macs because... well... they suck :p

you will find article with full src code based on GifLib here : http://www.codeproject.com/bitmap/JianImgCtxDecoder.asp
