     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 exam-
     ple, 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.

     -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 hexade-
          cimal and a leading ``0'' for octal.
