Subject: file formats that use external libraries should be split off
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 320b
Currently CPAN modules can't declare a dependency on Imager that requires (for example) GIF support. This means that they declare a dependency on Imager, attempt to use GIF support, and fail. GIF, TIFF, PNG, JPEG should be separated into Imager::File::* modules which only installed when the required library is found.
JPEG, TIFF, Win32, FT2, PNG, GIF done. Type1, TrueType (FT1) left to do
T1 is now done. I don't plan to do FT1 - let it die a slow death. So resolving this.
