It was [tool removed, sorry guys], my manpages most seemingly weren't up-to-date.


I hope this isn't too much of a spoiler, it's just the tool - people will still need to think of what they got to do with the data.


Are we not allowed to mention the tool's name here? The justification given above sure looks solid to me - it's just a tool, you still need to use it on your own. And it won't give you the answer all by itself, either.

That's a very nice challenge
A linux png tool helped me a lot
and a little python did the trick Cool

I can't figure it out. I got the "meaning" column, but people are talking about tools - is that whole encoded thing a red herring maybe?

If you have a png file and want to check it, there is a certain tool which you can use.

Thanks! That gave the last bit of information that I needed. (I must not have been paying attention while reading the PNG spec Razz)

ahh man, I've got so far with this. I've spotted the clever trick and found the hidden data inside, and I'd already used a tool eluded to earlier (always do with PNG puzzles) to look at the chunks, but nothing is leaping out at me.

I must use the data I've found in the file now somehow, but I got nothing.
