clip2gif is distributed as is, without any warranty or promise of technical support. clip2gif seems to work as expected, at least on my computer, but the author disclaims any liability of any kind for any loss of data, damages, etc. or any consequential effect.
clip2gif has produced files a few programs (including itself) seem to be able to decode, but it is in no way "certified" to encode files compliant with any standard.

The above statement doesn't mean anything more than what is specified in the GRAPHICS INTERCHANGE FORMAT v.89a specifications.
