       gifti_test [...]


       -help  Show usage help.

              Show giftilib history.

              Show giftilib version.

       -encoding TYPE
              Set the data encoding for any output file.

              TYPE = ASCII      : ASCII encoding

              TYPE = BASE64     : base64 binary

              TYPE = BASE64GZIP : base64 compressed binary

       -gfile OUTPUT
              Write out dataset as gifti image.

       -infile INPUT
              Specify INPUT as the GIFTI dataset to read.

              Do not write out data.

       -show  Show final gifti image.

       -slist LEN s0...
              Restrict output to list of length LEN.

       -verb VERB
              Set verbose level.


       1. read in a GIFTI dataset (verbose, show output?)

              gifti_test -infile dset.gii

              gifti_test -infile dset.gii -verb 3

              gifti_test -infile dset.gii -show

       2. copy a GIFTI dataset (check differences?)

              gifti_test -infile dset.gii -gfile copy.gii

              diff dset.gii copy.gii

       3. copy a GIFTI data, but write out only 3 surf indices: 0,4,5

              gifti_test -infile time_series.gii -gfile ts3.gii -slist 3 0 4 5
