       wrjpgcom - insert text comments into a JPEG file

       wrjpgcom [-replace] [-comment text] [-cfile name] [filename]

       wrjpgcom reads the named JPEG or JFIF file, or the standard input if no file is named, and
       generates a new JPEG or JFIF file on the standard output. A comment block is added to  the

       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.

       wrjpgcom adds a COM block, containing text that you provide, to a JPEG  file.  Ordinarily,
       the  COM  block	is  added  after  any existing COM blocks, but you can delete the old COM
       blocks if you wish.

       The following options are supported:

       -cfile name     Read the text for a new COM block from the named file.

       -comment text   Supply the text for a new COM block on the command line.

       -replace        Delete any existing COM blocks from the file.

       The following operands are supported:

       filename        The name of the JPEG file to which you want to add text comments.

       To add only one line of comment text, use the -comment option to provide the text  on  the
       command	line.  Specify	the  comment text within quotes, so that the text is treated as a
       single argument. Longer comments can be read from a text file.

       If you specify neither the -comment nor the -cfile option, wrjpgcom reads the comment text
       from standard input. In such cases, you must supply an input image filename. You can enter
       multiple lines, up to 64KB. Type an end-of-file indicator, usually  Ctrl-D,  to	terminate
       the comment text entry.

       wrjpgcom  does not add a COM block if the provided comment string is empty. Therefore, you
       can use -replace -comment "" to delete all COM blocks from a file.

       Example 1: Adding a Short Comment to in.jpg to Produce out.jpg

       example% wrjpgcom -c "View of my back yard" in.jpg > out.jpg

       Example 2: Attaching a Long Comment Previously Stored in comment.txt

       example% wrjpgcom in.jpg < comment.txt > out.jpg


       example% wrjpgcom -cfile comment.txt < in.jpg > out.jpg

       In this example, 1000 is a number that is larger than the number of  rows  in  the  source
