       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, fol-
       lowed by the tag contents of each directory in the file.  For each tag,
       the  name,  data type, count, and value(s) is displayed.  When the sym-
       bolic name for a tag or data type is known, the symbolic name  is  dis-
       played  followed  by it's numeric (decimal) value.  Tag values are dis-
       played enclosed in ``<>'' characters 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 contents of  TIFF
       files that libtiff does not understand.

              default decimal.

       -m items
              Change the number of indirect data items that  are  printed.  By
              default, this will be 24.

       -o offset
              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
