Tiff Width and Height Options
Added -width: and -height: command line options to specify the Tiff
output width or height pixels. If only one of -width: or -height: is
specified, the specified dimension will be fitted approximately to the
specified number of pixels. If both -width: and -height: are specified,
then the side with the higher DPI would be used. The window area
aspect ratio is maintained.
Default Tiff Output
e.g. With -width:1000 -height:500 -win:0,0,100,100
you won't get a 1000 x 500 Tiff output, you will get a 1008 x 1008
output instead (because of aspect ratio and snapping).
Similarly, -dpi: can be used to specify the DPI. The Tiff output in
pixels will then be calculated according to the window area size.
All Tiff pixels are snapped to 8 pixel alignment according to the full
mask size as specified in the Maly file.
Default Tiff output is approximately 1000 x 1000 pixels.
Now -dpi: is not a mandatory command line control anymore.
Select Masks To Draw
If -dpi: is not specified, the default Tiff size of 1000 x 1000 pixels is used.
Added 3 new command line options, -masks: -cmaskon -cmaskoff, to control
which masks to draw.
Masks with No Title Section
Specify -cmaskon to draw the structure groups in the cmask.
Specify -cmaskoff to not draw the structure groups in the cmask.
By default, the cmask structure groups are drawn.
The parameters in cmask are always used even with -cmaskoff.
Use -masks:name1,name2 to specify the masks to be drawn. The names of
the masks are separated by comma. Use -masks: with no names to turn
off all masks.
If a mask (Cmask or Mask) has no title section, the mask is not drawn
according to the spec. But Maly2tiff does not follow this rule. Use
-cmaskon -cmaskoff -masks: to control whether a mask is drawn or not.
By default, the cmask and all masks are drawn.
No Tiff Output If No Data In The Window Area
In the previous version, if no data exists in the window area, no Tiff
output is generated. Now it generates a blank Tiff output.
Tiff Output DPI
The DPI info in the Tiff output is always 72 in the previous version.
And there is a warning that the DPI is set to 72 when running the program.
Both of these are now fixed, the specified DPI is now correctly embedded
in the Tiff output and there's no warning message regarding a missing
DPI being set to 72.
ROOT NEO and EB Support
According to RAVE's customer, the ROOT record can have the keyword
NEO and EB. These 2 keywords are now supported just like the keyword
OASIS.MALY in the spec.
No Support for Maly Title Strings
According to RAVE's customer:
"These commands indicate that the job is compliant with the OASIS.NEO
and OASIS.EB standards that are enhancements to the OASIS.MALY format
agreed to by DNP, HITACHI, JEOL, and NUFLARE as a unified mask data
RAVE does not need Maly title strings and thus they remain unsupported.
Version 1.00a 11-23-11
