       img2cif - filter to convert detector images to CBF format


       img2cif [options] files...


       img2cif is a program that converts an image file from a MAR180, MAR300,
       MAR345 or ADSC  CCD  detector  to  CBF  format.  In  addition,  img2cif
       includes code to process files from stdin and to stdout, so the program
       can be used in a pipe.


       -i input_image
              (default: stdin) the input_image file in MAR300, MAR345 or  ADSC
              CCD  detector  format  is  given.   If  no  input_image  file is
              specified or is given as "-", an image is copied from stdin to a
              temporary file.

       -o output_cif
              (default:  stdout) the output cif (if base64 or quoted-printable
              encoding is used) or cbf  (if  no  encoding  is  used).   if  no
              output_cif  is  specified  or  is  given  as  "-", the output is
              written to stdout

       -c compression_scheme
              (packed, canonical or none, default packed)

       -m [no]headers
              (default headers for cifs, noheaders for cbfs) selects MIME  (N.
              Freed,  N.  Borenstein,  RFC 2045, November 1996) headers within
              binary data value text fields.

       -d [no]digest
              (default md5 digest [R. Rivest, RFC 1321, April  1992  using"RSA
              Data  Security,  Inc.  MD5  Message-Digest Algorithm"] when MIME
              headers are selected)

       -e encoding
              (base64, quoted-printable, decimal, hexadecimal, octal or  none,
              default:  base64)  specifies  one of the standard MIME encodings
              (base64  or  quoted-printable)  or   a   non-standard   decimal,
              hexamdecimal  or octal encoding for an ascii cif or "none" for a
              binary cbf

       -b direction
              (forward or backwards, default: natural direction) specifies the
              direction   of   mapping   of  bytes  into  words  for  decimal,
              hexadecimal or octal output, marked by ’>’ for  forward  or  ’<’
              for  backwards  as  the second character of each line of output,
              and in ’#’ comment lines.
