I have this on a machine:

       exiftool - Read and write meta information in files

       exiftool [OPTIONS] [-TAG...] [--TAG...] FILE...
       exiftool [OPTIONS] -TAG[+-<]=[VALUE]... FILE...
       exiftool [OPTIONS] -tagsFromFile SRCFILE [-SRCTAG[>DSTTAG]...]
       exiftool [ -ver | -list[w|f|wf|g[NUM]|d|x] ]

       For specific examples, see the EXAMPLES sections below.

       A command-line interface to Image::ExifTool, used for reading and
writing meta
       information in image, audio and video files.  FILE is one or more
source file
       names, directory names, or "-" for the standard input.  Information
is read from
       the source files and output in readable form to the console (or
written to
       output text files with -w).
