Several utilities have been provided with which to convert serialised data to and from TINA data files. These can be found in the top level "serialise" directory within TINA. They include routines for visualising serialised data directly for example:
tsgeom2tv (TINA geometry) tsimseq2tv (grey-level image sequences) tscimseq2tv (for colour image sequences)
These routines can be found in the top level "serialise" directory in Tina and provide a useful means for testing some aspects of modified algorithms.
