       sgi2tiff - create a TIFF file from an SGI image file


       sgi2tiff [ options ] input.rgb output.tif


       sgi2tiff  converts a file in the SGI image format to TIFF.  By default,
       the   TIFF   image   is    created    with    data    samples    packed
       (PlanarConfiguration=1),   compressed   with  the  Lempel-Ziv  &  Welch
       algorithm  (Compression=5),  and  with  each  strip  no  more  than   8
       kilobytes.    These   characteristics  can  overridden,  or  explicitly
       specified with the options described below.


       -c     Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data:  -c
              none   for   no   compression,  -c  packbits  for  the  PackBits
              compression  algorithm),  -c  jpeg   for   the   baseline   JPEG
              compression  algorithm,  -c  zip  for  the  Deflate  compression
              algorithm, and -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch (the default).

       -p     Explicitly select the planar configuration  used  in  organizing
              data  samples  in the output image: -p contig for samples packed
              contiguously, and -p separate for samples stored separately.  By
              default samples are packed.

       -r     Write data with a specified number of rows per strip; by default
              the number of rows/strip is  selected  so  that  each  strip  is
              approximately 8 kilobytes.


       Does not record colormap information.
