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 contents of each directory in the file. For each tag, the name, datatype, count, and values are displayed. When the symbolic name for a tag or datatype is known, the symbolic name is displayed followed by the numeric decimal value. Tag values are displayed 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.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported:

-h Force numeric data to be displayed in hexadecimal rather than the default decimal format.

-o Dump the contents of the IFD at a particular file offset. The file offset may be specified using the usual C-style syntax, that is, a leading "0x" for hexadecimal and a leading "0" for octal.

OPERANDS

The following operands are supported:

input.tif The name of the TIFF file.
