PECOMATO - RELEASE NOTES
PECoMaTo stands for Picture-Embedded COntents MAnipulation TOol.
It is basically designed to display any kind of information embedded in
picture files, as well as checking, filtering, extracting, removing, adding and
fixing such information. In other words, it's a metadata processor.
It supports the following file formats: JPEG/JFIF, Adobe PSD and FFO, raw IPTC.
And it knows about the following metadata formats: JFIF, IPTC, Exif, Adobe and
Fotostation. More file and metadata formats might be supported later: TIFF,
Adobe-specific metadata including XMP, etc.
It aims to be portable (see installation section below). One of its main goals
is to check the validity of parsed metadata as well as optionally check the
strict compliance to official standards. On another hand, it aims to provide
ways of fixing broken or not compliant chunks as well as providing general
basic functions to manipulate the metadata.
This program is subject to copyright. However you can copy, use and distribute
it according to the GNU General Public License (GPL v3 or above). See the
DISCLAIMER and LICENSE doc files for further information. It is free of charge,
as well as open-source (the source is available, feel free to submit patches).
pecomato builds and runs on various x86, ppc, 32bit and 64bit systems:
GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows (win32), QNX 6, Darwin (and MacOS X), BeOS 5 and
many Unices (IBM Aix, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Sun Solaris, GNU/OpenSolaris, etc).
Some other systems will probably be supported later (other Unices or
pecomato can be installed from the sources or binary packages or a variety of
self-installers and system-specific package formats (.rpm, .pkg, etc.).
There is no dependency at runtime, and building from the sources requires the
minimal GNU ANSI C development toolchain. See the INSTALL file to know what are
the available packages and how to install them. Building the doc requires
Simply run pecomato from a console or tty. You can get command-line usage or
further information using:
$ pecomato --help
A man page (Unix, GNU/Linux) and a short user guide is also available.
