pnggen is a very small, very simple application that demonstrates how to create a valid PNG image using a minimal footprint. It's neither fast nor efficient, and the PNGs it creates are essentially uncompressed, but it provides an easy-to-understand skeleton that might be extended trivially for use in embedded applications, for example.
