10     <p>
11     libgig is a C++ library for loading, modifying existing and creating new
12     Gigasampler files and DLS (Downloadable Sounds) Level 1/2 files. The
13     source code package includes a couple of command line tools based on the
14     library. The library and tools are released in source code format under the
15     <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html">GNU General Public License</a>.
16     </p>
17     <p>
18     This library is developed and optimized for POSIX compliant operating
19     systems like Linux and OSX and since release 3.1.1 for Windows as well.
20     libgig was developed to compile on any operating system, though since
21     release 3.0.0 libgig uses one tiny operating system dependant method to
22     be able to resize files. Should be a 5 minute job to implement this method
23     for other operating systems as well though.
