dimorder dim1,dim2[,dim3[,dim4]]  
Specify an arbitrary dimension order, given by an commaseparated list of between 2 and 4 dimension names.  
vector size  
Gives the size of a vector dimension (always the fastest varying
dimension). Default is no vector dimension.
 
byte 8bit integer values (default). short 16bit integer values. int 32bit integer values. long Superseded by int. float Singleprecision floating point values. double Doubleprecision floating point values. signed Values are signed integers (default for short and long). Ignored for floating point types. unsigned Values are unsigned integers (default for byte). Ignored for floating point types. range min max specifies the valid range of pixel values. Default is the full range for the type and sign. This option is ignored for floating point values. real_range min max specifies the real range of image values that corresponds to the pixel values of option range. Default is to not store the real image minimum and maximum. If scan_range is used, then the image minimum and maximum corresponding to the scanned pixel minimum and maximum are calculated and stored. This option is ignored for floating point values. swap_bytes Input values (either short or int) need to be converted between Motorola (bigendian) and Intel (littleendian) data format. If "short" input is specified, adjacent bytes are swapped. If "int" input is specified, inner and outer byte pairs are swapped. This option has no effect with other input types.
obyte Store 8bit integer values (default is input type). oshort Store 16bit integer values (default is input type). oint Store 32bit integer values (default is input type). olong Superseded by oint. ofloat Singleprecision floating point values (default is input type). odouble Doubleprecision floating point values (default is input type). osigned Values are signed integers (default for short and long). Ignored for floating point types. If output type is not specified, then default is input sign type. ounsigned Values are unsigned integers (default for byte). Ignored for floating point types. If output type is not specified, then default is input sign type. orange min max specifies the valid range of pixel values. Default is the full range for the type and sign. This option is ignored for floating point values. If output type and sign are not specified, then the default is the input range.
noscan_range Do not scan integer values for their minimum and maximum  assume that the range option gives the appropriate range of pixel values (default). No rescaling of pixel values is done (unless the output type differs from the input type) and the created images are assumed to have a real (not pixel value) minimum and maximum of zero and one. scan_range Integer values are scanned for their minimum and maximum. Pixel values are rescaled to give the full range of pixel values and the real minimum and maximum are set to the pixel minimum and maximum (unless real_range is used). This should be equivalent to converting the input to a floating point type and reading it in with float oshort (for example) assuming that real_range is not used.
2 Create MINC 2.0 format output files. clobber Overwrite existing minc file (default). noclobber Don’t overwrite existing minc file.
input inputfile Read input data from inputfile instead of standard input. skip length Skip the first length bytes of the input.
xstep xstep Step size for x dimension (default = none). ystep ystep Step size for y dimension (default = none). zstep zstep Step size for z dimension (default = none). xstart xstart Starting coordinate for x dimension (default = none). This is a distance parallel to the axis. ystart ystart Starting coordinate for y dimension (default = none). This is a distance parallel to the axis. zstart zstart Starting coordinate for z dimension (default = none). This is a distance parallel to the axis. xdircos x1 x2 x3 Direction cosines for x dimension (default = none). ydircos y1 y2 y3 Direction cosines for y dimension (default = none). zdircos z1 z2 z3 Direction cosines for z dimension (default = none). origin o1 o2 o3 Specify the spatial coordinates of the first voxel. If the direction cosines are not given or are the default ones, this option will give the same results as using the start options. Otherwise, the coordinate is projected parallel to the axes to determine the appropriate start values.
To set the start and step values for a functional file with a constant frame times, use the dattribute flag described below as follows:
frame_times t1,t2,t3,... Specify the start of each time frame. The number of values given must be equal to the length of the time dimension specified on the command line. All of the values given must be in one argument (no spaces between them, or the string must be quoted). Separation by spaces instead of commas is permitted. frame_widths w1,w2,w3,... Specify the length of each time frame. The comments for frame_times apply here as well.
dattribute time:step=1 dattribute time:start=0
nomodality Do not store modality type in file (default). pet PET data. mri MRI data. spect SPECT data. gamma Data from a gamma camera. mrs MR spectroscopy data. mra MR angiography data. ct CT data. dsa DSA data dr Digital radiography data.
sattribute variable:attribute=value Specify that variable should be created with string attribute set to value. The complete specification, including variable, attribute and value, should be contained in only one argument to the program  quoting may be needed for strings containing blanks. dattribute variable:attribute=value : Like sattribute, but for specifying doubleprecision attribute values. attribute variable:attribute=value Like sattribute or dattribute, except that the type is chosen by first trying to interpret the value as double precision  if that fails, then the value is assumed to be a string.
help Print summary of commandline options and exit. version Print the program’s version number and exit.
