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.
Print only the ouput sampling data.
Overwrite existing output files (when used with -outfile)
Specify the maximum size of the internal buffers (in kbytes). Default is 4096 (4MB).
Specify and input mask, only sampling points within this mask will be used.
Specify the value to use from the mask (Default: 1).
Sample all the data points.
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).
Specify the number of random samples to take from the input files. This value must be smaller than the maximum possible number of samples.
Output a mask file that corresponds to where samples were taken from.
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.
