inc2png - encoding include graphics data to an image file

Has anybody written a tool to convert a Uzebox graphical include file back into a png or another image format?

There is also an online gconvert as part of UAM: http://www.nicksen782.net/UAM/uam.php

I'm not sure if includes the inc2img functionality, but nicksen782 would know.

Oh so it's called inc2img - I almost guessed the name correctly!

I don't actually have a use for it yet but it's nice to know it exists, it could come in handy.

I did have a web-based version of inc2png. However, I didn't use it very often and didn't put it in the current online gconvert.

I could though. Would you find use in that?

The inc2png on Github probably works but it is an ancient precursor to what I currently have with the Online Gconvert. I'll update the online Gconvert to include the feature. Of course, the result will not look like the original graphic since duplicates and unused tiles in maps would have been removed.
