This little utility allows you to view raw Sinclair QL screen files on
Amiga window, and save them as  ILBM  images. Both  MODE 4  and  MODE 8
screens  are  supported. Only  QL  standart  32768 bytes long files are
recognized and shown.  On the  test  files  included  in  the  archive,
comments are set for each picture,  suggesting  the  mode  for accurate
viewing. The color palette is taken  from  Sinclair QL  screenshot, and
believed to be as  much  accurate  as  possible.   QLView   saves   the
shown picture in ILBM non compressed format,  24668  bytes  for  MODE 8 
pictures and 49244 bytes for MODE 4 pictures,both with Depth 3 (8 Color
Pallete).  Currently the program omits the flash  bits,  so some images
doesn't look exactly the same as on real or emulated QL.
Gwendoline_screen for example have some flashing snowflakes,  which are
standing still on the QLView window.

From CLI> QLView [QLScreen] [MODE=4/8]  , where QLScreen is the file to
be shown and MODE is the preffered mode (Default is 8).  Both arguments
are not obligatory. Examples:
 > QLView Renault5_screen 4      , will show Renault5_screen in MODE 4.
 > QLView Girl_screen MODE=4     , will show   Girl_screen   in MODE 4.
 > QLView GChrome_screen         , will show GChrome_screen  in MODE 8.
 > QLView           - Launches the program. Some help text will appear.
 > QLView ?         - Shows Usage info.
 > QLView MODE=4    - Launches the program in MODE 4.Help text appears.

On the program execution ->

  There is a menu accessable on right mouse click,  which  is  normally
hidden for viewing purposes.

  "Open File" menu item or RightAmiga+O or O key - Opens  FileRequester

if it is really a QL MODE 4 or MODE 8 picture.

  "Save as IFF" menu item or RightAmiga+S or S key -Opens FileRequester
for choosing filename of the ILBM format image,  and  saves the current
display with this name. If the filename already exist a  requester will 
appear, giving the chance to overwrite the file.

   "Colors" menu item or RightAmiga+W or W key - Switches  the  palette
between the original Colors and different sets. Total  eight  colorsets
are available,simulating different monitor shades - Black&White (Grey),
Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Color (default palette).The
selected palette is taken into account during saving.

   "Mode" menu item or RightAmiga+C or C key - Switches between MODE 4
and MODE 8.

   "Quit" menu item or RightAmiga+Q or Esc key - Quits the program.


Bug - saved .IFF picture is not corect.
