NAME

       rassplit - split a multi-frame rasterfile into single-frame rasterfiles.

SYNOPSIS

       rassplit [-f f1 f2 f3 ...]  [-ofmt output-format] [-verbose] [-Version] rasterfile

DESCRIPTION

       The  program rassplit will open rasterfile and copy each frame to it's own separate output
       file. By default, all frames are extracted but the user can optionally request a  specific
       set  of frames using the -f option. The output format defaults to be the same as the input
       format, but the user can also optionally select  a  new  output  format  using  the  -ofmt
       option.

       The  names  of  the output rasterfiles are derived from the name of the source rasterfile,
       the output format, and the frame numbers. The examples given below will demonstrate this.

OPTIONS

       -f f1 f2 f3 ...
              This option allows the user to specify a list of frames to be  extracted  from  the
              input rasterfile.

       -ofmt output-format
              The user can specify output-format to be the desired format e.g.  hdf, rgb, etc.

       -help  Print help information.

       -verbose
              Print a message each time an output rasterfile is written.

       -Version
              Print the version number.

EXAMPLES

       Assume  you  have  a  file called 'temp.nrif' that has three frames and that you'd like to
       split it into three separate frames, also in NRIF format.

                 rassplit temp.nrif

       This  will  result  in  three  output  files  named  temp.0001.nrif,  temp.0002.nrif,  and
       temp.003.nrif.

       Assume  you  only  want  frames  two  and  three, and you want them produced in HDF format
       instead of NRIF.

                 rassplit -fmt hdf -f 2 3 temp.nrif

       This will result in two output files named temp.0001.hdf and temp.0002.hdf.

CAVEATS

       If you're splitting an HDF file, ask for a non-HDF output format.  Otherwise  you'll  just
       get the first frame over and over again.
