rasls — list information on rasterfiles

Synopsis

rasls [-type] [-count] [-resolution] [-verbose] [-Version] [-ifmt file_format] [files]

Description

For each file rasls will generate a one line description of the rasterfile. Information provided includes the format type (Sun, HDF, etc.), the encoding (indexed, direct, etc.), resolution, and filename. Files that cannot be read as rasterfiles, are empty, are directories, or are otherwise unrecognizable are simply listed as such.

Options

-type
Print the encoding type of the rasterfile. Currently this will be either indexed or direct.
-count
Print the number of frames in the raster file.
-resolution
Print the spatial resolution of a file in pixels.
-help
Print help information.
-verbose
Print as much information as possible about each rasterfile. Information provided is a combination of format-independent and format-dependent parameters.
-Version
Print the version number.
-ifmt format
Specify the input file format. format is one of the file name extensions discussed in ras_formats(5NCARG) (without the ".", e.g. xwd). When this option is specified file name extensions are not necessary and are ignored if present. All input files must have the same format.
