i need to be able to recognise an image and process it accordingly by looking at the header information in the file.

therefore, i need to know the exact format of each image file header... is this information available in a simple format anywhere??

a text file outlining the exact byte format would be great.

i only need the format the header of jpg, bmp, pcx and gif files (all types).

thanx
