       gif2tiff - create a TIFF file from a GIF87 format image file


       gif2tiff [ options ] input.gif output.tif


       Gif2tiff  converts  a file in the GIF87 format to TIFF.  The TIFF image
       is created as a palette image, with samples compressed with the Lempel-
       Ziv  &  Welch  algorithm  (Compression=5).   These  characteristics can
       overridden, or explicitly specified with the options described below.


       -c     Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data:  -c
              none   for   no   compression,  -c  packbits  for  the  PackBits
              compression  algorithm,  -c  zip  for  the  Deflate  compression
              algorithm, and -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch (the default).

       -r     Write data with a specified number of rows per strip; by default
              the number of rows/strip is  selected  so  that  each  strip  is
              approximately 8 kilobytes.


       The program is based on Paul Haeberli's fromgif program which, in turn,
       is based on Marcel J.E. Mol's GIF reader.


       Should have more options to control output format.
