Converting OIL to CGM

OIL is an image format also known as the "Open Image Library Format". Though designed as a standardized format for open image transfer and storing, it is rarely used and might not be compatible with your image viewer. To open OIL images try converting them to more accessible extensions.

CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile) is a format that contains vector graphics information (clip art, drawings) associated with graphics design or CAD programs. As opposed to other types of metafiles, such as EMF or WMF, CGM files are not only supported by Windows, but can be used on different platforms too. They are encoded using binary, character-based of clear-text encoding.
