Concatenate sub-bricks from input datasets into one big ‘bucket’ dataset.

Usage: 3dbucket options

where the options are:

     -prefix pname = Use 'pname' for the output dataset prefix name.
 OR  -output pname     [default='buck']

     -session dir  = Use 'dir' for the output dataset session directory.
                       [default='./'=current working directory]
     -glueto fname = Append bricks to the end of the 'fname' dataset.
                       This command is an alternative to the -prefix
                       and -session commands.
                     * Note that fname should include the view, as in
                         3dbucket -glueto newset+orig oldset+orig'[7]'
     -aglueto fname= If fname dset does not exist, create it (like -prefix).
                     Otherwise append to fname (like -glueto).
                     This option is useful when appending in a loop.
                     * As with -glueto, fname should include the view, e.g.
                         3dbucket -aglueto newset+orig oldset+orig'[7]'
     -dry          = Execute a 'dry run'; that is, only print out
                       what would be done.  This is useful when
                       combining sub-bricks from multiple inputs.
     -verb         = Print out some verbose output as the program
                       proceeds (-dry implies -verb).
     -fbuc         = Create a functional bucket.
     -abuc         = Create an anatomical bucket.  If neither of
                       these options is given, the output type is
                       determined from the first input type.

Command line arguments after the above are taken as input datasets.
A dataset is specified using one of these forms:
   'prefix+view', 'prefix+view.HEAD', or 'prefix+view.BRIK'.
You can also add a sub-brick selection list after the end of the
dataset name.  This allows only a subset of the sub-bricks to be
included into the output (by default, all of the input dataset
is copied into the output).  A sub-brick selection list looks like
one of the following forms:
  fred+orig[5]                     ==> use only sub-brick #5
  fred+orig[5,9,17]                ==> use #5, #9, and #17
  fred+orig[5..8]     or [5-8]     ==> use #5, #6, #7, and #8
  fred+orig[5..13(2)] or [5-13(2)] ==> use #5, #7, #9, #11, and #13
Sub-brick indexes start at 0.  You can use the character '$'
to indicate the last sub-brick in a dataset; for example, you
can select every third sub-brick by using the selection list


N.B.: The sub-bricks are output in the order specified, which may
 not be the order in the original datasets.  For example, using
 will cause the sub-bricks in fred+orig to be output into the
 new dataset in an interleaved fashion.  Using
 will reverse the order of the sub-bricks in the output.

N.B.: Bucket datasets have multiple sub-bricks, but do NOT have
 a time dimension.  You can input sub-bricks from a 3D+time dataset
 into a bucket dataset.  You can use the '3dinfo' program to see
 how many sub-bricks a 3D+time or a bucket dataset contains.

N.B.: The '$', '(', ')', '[', and ']' characters are special to
 the shell, so you will have to escape them.  This is most easily
 done by putting the entire dataset plus selection list inside
 single quotes, as in 'fred+orig[5..7,9]'.

N.B.: In non-bucket functional datasets (like the 'fico' datasets
 output by FIM, or the 'fitt' datasets output by 3dttest), sub-brick
 [0] is the 'intensity' and sub-brick [1] is the statistical parameter
 used as a threshold.  Thus, to create a bucket dataset using the
 intensity from dataset A and the threshold from dataset B, and
 calling the output dataset C, you would type
    3dbucket -prefix C -fbuc 'A+orig[0]' -fbuc 'B+orig[1]'


         Using this program, it is possible to create a dataset that
         has different basic datum types for different sub-bricks
         (e.g., shorts for brick 0, floats for brick 1).
         Do NOT do this!  Very few AFNI programs will work correctly
         with such datasets!
