        PROJECT: meta
        VERSION: 0.01

SYNOPSIS [options]


This script checks a list of files (currently all files contained recursivly in a directory) for damaged image files and either produces a list of the damaged files or just removes them. Why should you need such a script ? well, it seems that most image viewers today will show you an image even if the file itself is damaged (some of the last scan lines are missing etc...). This script is intended to aid you in finding the bad images in a big image collection.

How does it work ? It uses Image::Magick to load the image. If the file is ok then all is well and the image is discarded. If the load fails then it reports the image as being bad or removed it (your preference).

Other strategies for determining the correctness of the image file may be added in the future.
