       rdjpgcom - display text comments from a JPEG file

       rdjpgcom [ -verbose ] [ filename ]

       rdjpgcom	 reads	the  named JPEG/JFIF file, or the standard input if no
       file is named, and prints any text comments found in the	 file  on  the
       standard output.

       The  JPEG standard allows "comment" (COM) blocks to occur within a JPEG
       file.  Although the standard doesn't actually define  what  COM	blocks
       are for, they are widely used to hold user-supplied text strings.  This
       lets you add annotations, titles, index terms, etc to your JPEG	files,
       and  later retrieve them as text.  COM blocks do not interfere with the
       image stored in the JPEG file.  The maximum size of a COM block is 64K,
       but you can have as many of them as you like in one JPEG file.

	      Causes rdjpgcom to also display the JPEG image dimensions.

       Switch names may be abbreviated, and are not case sensitive.

       rdjpgcom	 does  not depend on the IJG JPEG library.  Its source code is
       intended as an illustration of the minimum amount of code  required  to
       parse a JPEG file header correctly.

       In  -verbose  mode, rdjpgcom will also attempt to print the contents of
       any "APP12" markers as text.  Some digital cameras produce APP12	 mark‐
       ers containing useful textual information.  If you like, you can modify
       the source code to print other APPn marker types as well.
