       gif2tiff - create a TIFF file from a GIF87 format image file

       gif2tiff [ options ] input.gif output.tif

       Gif2tiff converts a file in the GIF87 format to TIFF.  The TIFF image is created as a pal-
       ette image, with samples compressed with the Lempel-Ziv & Welch algorithm (Compression=5).
       These  characteristics  can  overriden, or explicitly specified with the options described

       -c     Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data: -c none  for  no  com-
	      pression,  -c  packbits  for  the  PackBits  compression	algorithm, -c zip for the
	      Deflate compression algorithm, and -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch (the default).

       -r     Write data with a specified number of rows per strip;  by  default  the  number  of
	      rows/strip is selected so that each strip is approximately 8 kilobytes.

       The program is based on Paul Haeberli's fromgif program which, in turn, is based on Marcel
       J.E. Mol's GIF reader.

       Should have more options to control output format.
