tiffdump - Unix, Linux Command
tiffdump - print verbatim information about
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 its 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.

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

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.
