NAME
       tifftopnm - convert a TIFF file into a portable anymap

SYNOPSIS
       tifftopnm [-headerdump] tifffile

DESCRIPTION
       Reads a TIFF file as input.  Produces a portable anymap as
       output.  The type of the output file depends on the  input
       file  - if it's black & white, a pbm file is written, else
       if it's grayscale a pgm file, else a ppm file.   The  pro-
       gram tells you which type it is writing.

OPTIONS
       -headerdump
              Dump  TIFF file information to stderr.  This infor-
              mation may be useful in debugging TIFF file conver-
              sion problems.

       All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique pre-
       fix.
