NAME

       dcmftest - Test if file uses DICOM part 10 format

SYNOPSIS

       dcmftest file...

DESCRIPTION

       The  dcmftest  utility  checks  whether  the files specified on the command line are DICOM
       files in part 10 format (with meta-header).

PARAMETERS

       dcmfile-in  DICOM input filename to be dumped

NOTES

       All files specified on the command line are checked for the presence of the  DICOM  'magic
       word'  'DICM' at byte position 128. No attempt is made to parse the complete data set. For
       each file the test result is printed to stdout in the form  'yes:  <filename>\n'  or  'no:
       <filename>\n'.  The  utility  terminates with a return code corresponding to the number of
       files found to be non-DICOM, i.e. if all files pass as DICOM files, the return value is 0.
       This behaviour is intended for use in shell script programming.
