Improve bfconvert

bfconvert is missing many of the features/command line options that are available in showinf (e.g. -stitch, -merge, multi-series support). These features should be added, along with support for specifying multiple output files.

The -stitch, -separate, -merge, -fill and -series options are done. Still no support for writing to multiple files, or converting multiple series at a time, though.

As of r3760, "bfconvert <infile> <outfile>" will convert all series in <infile>.

  • Milestone set to bio-formats-m2

The only significant feature left is the ability to output to a split file dataset, such as multiple linked OME-TIFF files.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

(In [4978]) Allow bfconvert to save to multiple files; run bfconvert with no options to see how to do this. Closes #231.
