Cute. Somehow I don't think this is a program that someone on the
newsgroup can knock out in ten minutes.  Converting a raster image
into a vector image is not the easiest thing that can be done.  In
fact, from what I found on the web, raster-to-vector is *very* hard.
If your images are computer-generated, can you get the original vector
