Also see the switch:

	The source dataset name. It can be either file name, URL of data
source or subdataset name for multi-dataset files.

Thank you for getting back to me on this!
Yes, I am using the 1.6.0 version of GDAL.  

I did what you suggested and it gives me a bus error when I run the
gdalinfo command on the a.toc file.  Do you recall what the problems
were with the CIB data that you heard about?  I have a 1 meter, 5 meter
and 10 meter data sets that I tried and I got a bus error on all of
them.  Any other ideas?

Selon "Rydzak, Carol-P28503" <Carol.Rydzak at gdc4s.com>:

I assume you are using a recent enough GDAL version (>= 1.5.0) that has
the RPFTOC driver. If so, gdalinfo on the a.toc should return a list of
subdatasets (at least one). You can then select one and translate it to
a GeoTIFF. It will mosaic all the underlying NITF tiles. See
http://gdal.org/frmt_various.html#RPFTOC for more info.

Someone recently reported problems with CIB but I've not heard any news
since then. The driver was tested against CADRG datasets but should
theoritically work with CIB too.
