caret(1) interactive viewing, manipulation and analysis of surface


Caret is a software application for viewing and manipulating surface reconstructions of the cerebral and cerebellar cortex, viewing volumes, for displaying experimental data on the surfaces and volumes and performing functional and structural analysis of the cerebral cortex.

Besides the main GUI application, the Caret software package provides a command line interface caret_command that significantly improves the efficiency when analyzing a large number of datasets.

caret_command provides an extensive help output when called with the -help option.
