       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


              Print extra information during processing.

       -quiet Print only the output sampling data.

              Overwrite existing output files (when used with -outfile)

       -max_buffer size
              Specify the maximum size of the internal  buffers  (in  kbytes).  Default  is  4096

       -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

       -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 output data to an existing file.

       -ascii Write out data as ascii strings (Default).

       -ascii Write out data as double precision floating-point values.

              Write out world co-ordinates as well as sampling values.

       -help  Print summary of command-line options and exit.

              Print the program's version number and exit.
