       ras2tiff - create a TIFF file from a Sun rasterfile

       ras2tiff [options] input.ras output.tif

       ras2tiff  converts a file in the Sun rasterfile format to TIFF. By default, the TIFF image
       is created with data samples packed (PlanarConfiguration=1), compressed with  the  Lempel-
       Ziv  and  Welch	algorithm  (Compression=5), and with each strip no more than 8 kilobytes.
       These characteristics can be overridden or explicitly specified with the options described

       Any colormap information in the rasterfile is carried over to the TIFF file by including a
       Colormap tag in the output file. If the rasterfile has a colormap,  the	PhotometricInter-
       pretation  tag  is set to 3 (palette). Otherwise, the PhotometricInterpretation tag is set
       to 2 (RGB) if the depth is 24, or to 1 (min-is-black) if the depth is not 24.

       The following options are supported:

       -c	       Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data:

		       -c jpeg		       Baseline JPEG compression algorithm.

		       -c lzw		       Lempel-Ziv  and	Welch  algorithm.  This  is   the
					       default algorithm.

		       -c none		       No compression.

		       -c packbits	       PackBits compression algorithm.

		       -c zip		       Deflate compression algorithm.

       -r	       Write data with a specified number of rows per strip. By default, the num-
		       ber of rows per strip is selected so that each strip  is  approximately	8

       The following operands are supported:

       input.ras       The name of the input file that contains Sun rasterfile data.

       output.tif      The name of the output file that contains TIFF data.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWTiff			   |
       |Interface stability	     |Uncommitted		   |

       pal2rgb(1), tiffinfo(1), tiffcp(1), tiffmedian(1), libtiff(3)

       Does  not  support all possible rasterfiles. In particular, ras2tiff does not support run-
       length encoded images.
