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 contents of each directory in the file.  For each tag, the name, data type, count, and value(s) is
       displayed.  When the symbolic name for a tag or data type is known, the symbolic name is displayed followed  by
       it's  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
       -h     Force numeric data to be printed in hexadecimal rather than the 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 octal.
