GRF Tool is the world's first open source application for extracting GRF archives. It aims to be a GRF extractor that does not suck.

Here are some key features of "GRF Tool":
A userfriendly and usable interface!
Very fast loading. A 650 MB GRF archive is loaded in less than 2 seconds *.
Very fast extraction. You can also abort the extraction process at any time.
Supports previewing of text files and bitmap images.
Properly supports Korean text encoding.
The integrated search bar allows you to find the files you're looking for in no time.
Works on both Windows and Linux. This is the first GRF extractor that supports Linux!

Version 1.2 of GRF Tool aims to be a program that does one thing, and does it very well: to view and to extract GRF archives. It cannot repack GRF archives. However, that's planned for future releases.

What's New in This Release:
Sprite preview support in the Linux/GTK frontend.
Some bug fixes in the Win32 frontend. This probably solves the error messages that some people get while extracting files.
Improved GRF file adding support in libgrf.
Added a pkg-config entry for Linux, so applications can easily use libgrf.
A Software Development Kit (SDK) for Win32 is now available, making it easier for Win32 software developers to use libgrf.
