Interchange File Format (IFF)

IFF (Amiga Interchange) is a general-purpose data storage format (raster), developed by Electronic Arts, Inc. and Commodore-Amiga, Inc. that can associate and store multiple types of data. It is used by ACD FotoCanvas Lite 2.0 and XnView applications.

IFF reads and writes RLE, and non-compressed images.  IFF CAT supports multipage files.
