tiffdump - print verbatim information about TIFF files
tiffdump [ options ] name ...
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 value(s) is displayed. When the sym-
bolic name for a tag or datatype is known, the symbolic name is displayed followed by it's
numeric (decimal) value. Tag values are displayed enclosed in ``<>'' characters immedi-
ately preceded by the value of the count field. For example, an ImageWidth tag might be
displayed as ``ImageWidth (256) SHORT (3) 1<800>''.
tiffdump is particularly useful for investigating the contents of TIFF files that libtiff
does not understand.
-h Force numeric data to be printed in hexadecimal rather than the default decimal.
-o Dump the contents of the IFD at the a particular file offset. The file offset may
be specified using the usual C-style syntax; i.e. a leading ``0x'' for hexadecimal
and a leading ``0'' for octal.
