       rdjpgcom - display text comments from a JPEG file

       rdjpgcom [-verbose] [filename]

       rdjpgcom reads the named JPEG or JFIF file, or the standard input if no file is named, and
       displays 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  does  not  actually  define the intended function of COM blocks, they are widely
       used to hold user-supplied text strings. This enables  you  to  add  annotations,  titles,
       index  terms, and so on to your JPEG files, and later retrieve the COM blocks 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 many COM blocks in one JPEG file.

       The following options are supported:

       -verbose        Causes rdjpgcom to also display the JPEG image dimensions.

       The following operands are supported:

       filename        The name of the JPEG file that contains text comments.

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

       In -verbose mode, rdjpgcom also attempts to display the contents of any "APP12" markers as
       text.  Some digital cameras produce APP12 markers that contain useful textual information.
       You can also modify the source code to display other APPn marker types.
