mincsample - generate samplings from minc files.
mincsample [<options>] <in1.mnc> [<in2.mnc> [<..>]]
Mincsample produces a data sampling on STDOUT from an input series of minc files. The output can be either ascii (-ascii) or as a raw binary stream of doubles (-double). The output data is ordered first by file then voxel. When -ascii is used the data values from each file are separated by a tab and the sampling points with a newline. When using -double, no separators are used. If -coords is also specified, the world co-ordinate at each sampling point will precede the data from each of the files. An optional -outfile argument can also be used to direct the output to a file and -append used to append the data to the file as opposed to overwriting the file. By default all data points are written out (-all) the output of points can also be constrained to be points within a mask (-mask and -mask_val) and further by a random sampling of a sub-set of points via the -random_samples and -random_seed arguments
-verbose Print extra information during processing. -quiet Print only the output sampling data. -clobber Overwrite existing output files (when used with -outfile) -max_buffer size Specify the maximum size of the internal buffers (in kbytes). Default is 4096 (4MB). -mask mask.mnc Specify and input mask, only sampling points within this mask will be used. -mask_val value Specify the value to use from the mask (Default: 1). -all Sample all the data points. -random_seed value Specify the random seed value to use during random sampling, this is to enable reproducible runs. If no seed is given a semi-random seed will be chosen (from time). -random_samples value Specify the number of random samples to take from the input files. This value must be smaller than the maximum possible number of samples. -sample sample.mnc Output a mask file that corresponds to where samples were taken from. -outfile file Output sampling data to a file. (Default: STDOUT). -append Append output data to an existing file. -ascii Write out data as ascii strings (Default). -ascii Write out data as double precision floating-point values. -coords Write out world co-ordinates as well as sampling values. -help Print summary of command-line options and exit. -version Print the program's version number and exit.
