       tiffdump - display verbatim information about TIFF files

       tiffdump [options] input.tif...

       tiffdump displays directory information from files created according to the Tag Image File
       Format, Revision 6.0. The header of each TIFF  file  (magic  number,  version,  and  first
       directory  offset)  is  displayed,  followed  by the tag contents of each directory in the
       file. For each tag, the name, datatype, count, and values are displayed. When the symbolic
       name  for  a  tag  or  datatype	is  known, the symbolic name is displayed followed by the
       numeric decimal value. Tag values are displayed enclosed in  "<>"  characters  immediately
       preceded  by  the  value  of the count field. For example, an ImageWidth tag might be dis-
       played as "ImageWidth (256) SHORT (3) 1<800>".

       tiffdump is particularly useful for investigating the contents of TIFF files that  libtiff
       does not understand.

       The following options are supported:

       -h	       Force  numeric data to be displayed in hexadecimal rather than the default
		       decimal format.

       -o	       Dump the contents of the IFD at a particular file offset. The file  offset
		       may  be	specified using the usual C-style syntax, that is, a leading "0x"
		       for hexadecimal and a leading "0" for octal.

       The following operands are supported:

       input.tif       The name of the TIFF file.
