Dear Steffen,

during my stay in Martinsried I wrote a program i2tif that does
exactly what you want:

  - reads small/big MAR image files
  - recognizes byte swapped files
  - converts to greyscale TIFF file, readable by PC, MAC, UNIX xv...
  - adjustable saturation cutoff

Unfortunately, it requires libtiff.a and is only tested on DEC UNIX
and SGI (5.X). If you contact me, I can give access to a copy of
both i2tif and libtiff.

I have to acknowledge Lars Ditzel (Martinsried) for making the latest
