AnimIcon Version 1.3

!.3 fixes abug in the tooltypes handling. Snapshot et al should now work.

A long time ago in my earlier days of programing I made a little tool launcher
for AmigaOS 3.5 "AnimIcon".

Here it is again brought completely up to date for AmigaOS 4.x 

Version 1.2 add support for dropping icons on the AnimIcon and having them
to the specified script or program.

The code has been rewritten using the latest AmigaOS 4 functions, replacing all 
depricated fuctions such as CreatePort, AlloVec etc with their modern 
replacements. AllocSysyObject() AllocVecTags() etc. 

Also the animations are loaded as 32bit ARGB images and support transparency.


Copy AnimIcon to C: or anywhere else of your choosing. 


The examples are setup to run simply by clicking on the icon in the examples 
directory. You can if you wish to add them to WBStartup, just copy the 
animations and icon to a sensible location and then drop the icon on WBStartup



At the time of typing this the documentation refers to the 68k AmigaOS 3.5
but most of the information it still useful.
