mincconvert - convert between MINC 1 to MINC 2 format.
mincconvert [-clobber] [-2] infile outfile
mincconvert copies the input file to the output file, possibly
converting the file from MINC 1 to MINC 2 format, or vice versa.
With the -template flag, mincconvert creates a "template" volume from
the input MINC volume. The template volume preserves all of the
structure (dimensions, variables, and attributes) of the input MINC
volume but omits all data. Any attempt to read data will return
The resulting file is typically much shorter than a normal MINC volume,
and may be useful for scripts which want to carry such structural
information forward into their output files. As a hint to future
programmers and users, this program places a special global attribute
in the file, with the name class and the value template.
-2 Create a MINC 2 format file
Overwrite a pre-existing output file. -help Print a summary of
command line options and exit
Create a template file.
Compress file with compression level N. Valid compression
levels are 0 for no compression to 9 for maximum compression.
The option has no effect if the output file is a MINC 1 file.
Store file in a block-structured arrangement, using hypercubes
of edge length M. The option has no effect if the output file
is a MINC 1 file.
-help Print summary of command-line options and exit.
Print the program’s version number and exit.
