       imagej - A Java image processing program inspired by NIH Image.


       imagej [option] <filename>
       imagej [-i image] [-b|-m] [arg1 ... argN]


       Imagej  is  a  Java-based  image  processing  program  developed at the
       National Institutes  of  Health.  ImageJ  was  designed  with  an  open
       architecture   that   provides   extensibility  via  Java  plugins  and
       recordable macros.  Custom acquisition, analysis and processing plugins
       can  be  developed  using ImageJ’s built-in editor and a Java compiler.
       User-written plugins make it possible to solve  many  image  processing
       and analysis problems, from 3-dimensional live-cell imaging,
        to   radiological  image  processing,  multiple  imaging  system  data
       comparisons  to  automated   hematology   systems.    ImageJ’s   plugin
       architecture and built in development environment has made it a popular
       platform for teaching image processing.

       ImageJ can be run as an online applet, a downloadable  application,  or
       on any computer with a Java 1.1 or later virtual machine.


       -h     Output help information and exit.

       -o     Open images in existing ImageJ panel if one exists.

       -p <N> Open images in existing ImageJ panel number <N>.

       -x <MB>
              Set available memory.

       -c     Enable plugin compilation within imagej.

       -v     Be verbose (vv or vvv increases verbosity).

       -e Macro Code
              Execute macro code.

       -r Menu Command
              Run  menu command.  Quotation marks are required around commands
              including spaces Commands can be sent to open ImageJ panels with
              the -p option.

       -b macro
              Run macro without graphics window.

       -m macro
              Run  macro,  image  will  be  opened  before  macro  is  run all
              following arguments are passed to macro.


       Most IMAGEJ add-on are taken from $HOME/.imagej.  The  system  wide
        equivalent is in /usr/share/imagej/
