hdftor8 - extract 8-Bit raster images and palettes from HDF file
hdftor8 hdf-file [-i] [-v] [-r raster-image-file] [-p pallette-file]
hdftor8 extracts the raster images and/or palettes from an HDF file and
stores them in one file that contains the raster image data and another
that contains the palette data.
The names given for the raster image and palette files are interpreted
by hdftor8 as follows: For each raster image file, the file name is
given the extension ".#.@.%", where "#" represents the raster image
number from the HDF file, "@" represents the x-dimension of the raster
image, and "%" represents the y-dimension of the raster image. For each
palette file, the file name is given the extensions ".#", where "#"
represents the palette number from the HDF format file.
If no name is given for the raster image file, the default name
"img.#.@.%" is assigned, where "#", "@", and "%" are as defined in the
preceding paragraph. The default name for a palette file is "pal.#".

Specify the name of the raster image file.
Specify the name of the palette file.
A file named "denm.hdf" contains three 512 x 256 raster images and
three palettes. To store these images and palettes in separate raster
image and palette files, use the following hdftor8 command:
Six files are created, named "img1.512.256", "img2.512.256",
"img3.512.256", "pal.1", "pal.2", and "pal.3".
