SYNOPSISmincsample [<options>] <in1.mnc> [<in2.mnc> [<..>]]
DESCRIPTIONMincsample 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.
- Print only the ouput 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 (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).
- 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 output data to an existing file.
- Write out data as ascii strings (Default).
- Write out data as double precision floating-point values.
- Write out world co-ordinates as well as sampling values.
- Print summary of command-line options and exit.
Print the program's version number and exit.
