TIFFDUMP(1)                                           TIFFDUMP(1)

NAME
       tiffdump - print verbatim information about TIFF files

SYNOPSIS
       tiffdump [ options ] name ...

DESCRIPTION
       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  con-
       tents  of  each  directory in the file.  For each tag, the
       name, datatype, count, and value(s)  is  displayed.   When
       the symbolic name for a tag or datatype is known, the sym-
       bolic name is displayed followed by it's numeric (decimal)
       value.   Tag values are displayed enclosed in ``<>'' char-
       acters immediately 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 con-
       tents of TIFF files that libtiff does not understand.

OPTIONS
       -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.
