NAME
       ras2tiff - create a TIFF file from a Sun rasterfile

SYNOPSIS
       ras2tiff [ options ] input.ras output.tif

DESCRIPTION
       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  &  Welch  algorithm  (Compression=5),  and	with each strip no more than 8 kilobytes.
       These characteristics can overridden, or explicitly specified with the  options	described
       below.

       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 it is set to 2 (RGB) if the depth is 24 or
       1 (min-is-black) if the depth is not 24.

OPTIONS
       -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 jpeg for the base-
	      line JPEG 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.

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