Thank you Dave, that looks like the path I've been looking for. I've been
playing with a program by Thomas Schmitt - "stic", a suite of programs to
identify and process duplicate pictures (pre-version 0.3
http://stic.webframe.org/stic-0.3.tar.gz). One of these programs (simv)
runs a process that will:
...show you four categories of images in separate runs of simv -tcltk :
unique ........ images with no duplicates found
interesting ... images which are larger than the duplicates found
equivalent .... images that are equally sized or slightly smaller
problem ....... files which are supposed to be images but unreadable
Feeding that output to your script might be the ticket I've been looking
Thanks again for the input.
