DeuTex is a wad composer for Doom, Heretic, Hexen and Strife. It can be used to extract the lumps of a wad and save them as individual files or the reverse, and much more.

When extracting a lump to a file, it does not just copy the raw data, it converts it to an appropriate format (such as PPM for graphics, Sun audio for samples, etc.). Conversely, when it reads files for inclusion in pwads, it does the necessary conversions (for example, from PPM to Doom picture format).

DeuSF is a trimmed version of DeuTex that is used to merge sprites and flats from a pwad into an iwad, which is sometimes necessary because Doom and its breed do not handle sprites in pwads well.

See docsrc/dtexman6.txt for more information on DeuTex and DeuSF.
