Manipulation and conversion tools for OpenSlide

Description

OpenSlide is a C library that provides a simple interface to read whole-slide images also known as virtual slides.

Whole-slide images, also known as virtual slides, are large, high resolution images used in digital pathology. Reading these images using standard image tools or libraries is a challenge because these tools are typically designed for images that can comfortably be uncompressed into RAM or a swap file. Whole-slide images routinely exceed RAM sizes, often occupying tens of gigabytes when uncompressed. Additionally, whole-slide images are typically multi-resolution, and only a small amount of image data might be needed at a particular resolution.

This library currently supports:
 - Aperio (.svs, .tif)
 - Hamamatsu (.vms, .vmu, .ndpi)
 - Leica (.scn)
 - MIRAX (.mrxs)
 - Sakura (.svslide)
 - Trestle (.tif)
 - Generic tiled TIFF (.tif)

This package contains command line tools for file manipulation.
