       igrep - search images for matching metadata


       igrep [options] pattern files...


       The igrep utility is invoked as follows:

       igrep [options] pattern filename...

       Where  pattern is a POSIX.2 regular expression (just like the Unix/Linux grep(1) command),
       and filename (and any following names)  specify  images  or  directories  that  should  be
       searched.  An  image  file  will  "match"  if  any of its metadata contains values contain
       substring that are recognized regular expression. The image files may  be  of  any  format
       recognized by OpenImageIO (i.e., for which ImageInput plugins are available).


       $ igrep Jack *.jpg
       bar.jpg: Keywords = Carly; Jack
       foo.jpg: Keywords = Jack
       test7.jpg: ImageDescription = Jack on vacation

       For a complete description, see /usr/share/doc/openimageio-doc/openimageio.pdf.gz.
