validate

Image validation utility. This command line utility verifies image files to make sure they are valid and can be read without difficulty by Image Serving.

All non-PTIFF image files must pass validate before the file is made available to Image Serving as a source image. PTIFF images should be validated after potentially unreliable copy operations.

Usage

validate *fileType* [ *options*] [ *sourceFile* [ … ]]

fileType

-jpeg | -ptif | -any

Source file type; at least one must be specified (-any allows the same image file types supported by IC).

options

Other command options (see below).

sourceFile

Image file. None or more, separated by spaces.

Returns

0 if successful. If an error occurs, a non-zero value is returned and error details are sent to stderr.

Options

-fileList listFile

Specifies a separate text file containing the list of image files. One record per file. If -fileList is included, sourceFile must not be specified.

-readPixels

Enables verification of the entire image file. By default, only the image header is validated.

-validatecolorprofile

Verifies the embedded color profile for validity. By default, the profile body is not checked.

-reject16BitPerComponent

Rejects images with 16 bits per image component. Always specified by the Image Server when it validates remote source images.

-verbose

Prints more information if the image is invalid.

-silent

Disables stdout / stderr output. Only a status is returned.

-stopOnError

Terminates processing when a file validation failure occurs, even if additional files are yet to be validated. By default, processing continues when a validation error occurs

-version

Returns version info for this utility. Specify with no other options.
