Opens an Andor .sif file as an image or a stack. The width, height and number of images are extracted from the ASCII encoded variable length header.

Note: if your files have more than one subimage this program will not open your .sif file correctly. If your stack of images have time stamps associated with each image, this program will also not work. However, it would not be hard to modify the code to open those types of files.
