       hdftor8 - extract 8-Bit raster images and palettes from HDF file


       hdftor8 hdf-file [-i] [-v] [-r raster-image-file] [-p pallette-file]


       hdftor8 extracts the raster images and/or palettes from an HDF file and stores them in one
       file that contains the raster image data and another that contains the palette data.

       The names given for the raster image and palette  files  are  interpreted  by  hdftor8  as
       follows:  For each raster image file, the file name is given the extension ".#.@.%", where
       "#" represents the raster image number from the HDF file, "@" represents  the  x-dimension
       of  the  raster  image,  and  "%" represents the y-dimension of the raster image. For each
       palette file, the file name is given the extensions ".#", where "#" represents the palette
       number from the HDF format file.

       If  no  name is given for the raster image file, the default name "img.#.@.%" is assigned,
       where "#", "@", and "%" are as defined in the preceding paragraph. The default name for  a
       palette file is "pal.#".


       -i     Execute the program in interactive mode.

       -v     Execute in verbose mode. Display diagnostic messages during the session.

       -r raster-image-file
              Specify the name of the raster image file.

       -p pallette-file
              Specify the name of the palette file.


       A  file  named  "denm.hdf"  contains  three 512 x 256 raster images and three palettes. To
       store these images and palettes in separate  raster  image  and  palette  files,  use  the
       following hdftor8 command:

               hdftor8 denm.hdf

       Six  files  are  created,  named  "img1.512.256", "img2.512.256", "img3.512.256", "pal.1",
       "pal.2", and "pal.3".
