The CLP file format represents a subset of a file format called Pictor PC Paint. The use for PC Paint format is to display images created by the PC Paint application to IBM display hardware (CGA, EGA, VGA, etc.).

The header of a CLP file is fairly short and simple, containing the file size (in bytes), and the height, width, and address of the image. The image data may be compressed or uncompressed. If it is compressed, the header contains two additional fields to give the number of bits per pixel of the packed data, and the address of the beginning of the packed run.
