       mincconvert - convert between MINC 1 to MINC 2 format.


       mincconvert [-clobber] [-2] infile outfile

       mincconvert -help


       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 N
              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.

       -chunk M
              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.
