       dcmpssnd - Network send for presentation state viewer


       dcmpssnd [options] config-file target study [series] [instance]


       The   dcmpssnd   application  is  invoked  by  the  Grayscale  Softcopy
       Presentation State Viewer and is not intended to be  invoked  manually.
       The  application  reads  the  common configuration file which is shared
       between the different components of the viewer, attempts to establish a
       DICOM  association with the selected target and, if successful, selects
       the required DICOM instances from the viewer’s database  and  transmits
       them  using the DICOM storage service class, which is supported as SCU.
       When transmission is finished  (successfully  or  unsuccessfully),  the
       application  terminates. This application supports the same storage SOP
       classes as the storescu utility,  but  does  not  support  encapsulated
       transfer  syntaxes.  See  the  full  conformance  statement for further


       config-file  configuration file to be read

       target       symbolic identifier of send target in config file

       study        study instance UID of study in database to be sent

       series       series instance UID (default: send complete study)

       instance     SOP instance UID (default: send complete series)


   general options
         -h  --help
               print this help text and exit

               print version information and exit

         -v  --verbose
               verbose mode, print processing details

         -d  --debug
               debug mode, print debug information


       All command line tools  use  the  following  notation  for  parameters:
       square  brackets  enclose  optional  values  (0-1), three trailing dots
       indicate that multiple values are allowed (1-n), a combination of  both
       means 0 to n values.

       Command line options are distinguished from parameters by a leading ’+’
       or ’-’ sign, respectively. Usually, order and position of command  line
       options  are  arbitrary  (i.e.  they  can appear anywhere). However, if
       options are mutually exclusive the rightmost appearance is  used.  This
       behaviour  conforms  to  the  standard  evaluation rules of common Unix

       In addition, one or more command files can be specified  using  an  ’@’
       sign  as  a  prefix to the filename (e.g. @command.txt). Such a command
       argument is replaced by the content  of  the  corresponding  text  file
       (multiple  whitespaces  are treated as a single separator) prior to any
       further evaluation. Please note that  a  command  file  cannot  contain
       another  command  file.  This  simple  but effective approach allows to
       summarize common combinations of options/parameters and avoids  longish
       and   confusing   command   lines  (an  example  is  provided  in  file


       The dcmpssnd utility will  attempt  to  load  DICOM  data  dictionaries
       specified  in the DCMDICTPATH environment variable. By default, i.e. if
       the  DCMDICTPATH  environment   variable   is   not   set,   the   file
       <PREFIX>/lib/dicom.dic  will  be  loaded unless the dictionary is built
       into the application (default for Windows).

       The  default  behaviour  should  be  preferred  and   the   DCMDICTPATH
       environment  variable  only used when alternative data dictionaries are
       required. The DCMDICTPATH environment variable has the same  format  as
       the  Unix  shell PATH variable in that a colon (’:’) separates entries.
       The data dictionary code will attempt to load each  file  specified  in
       the  DCMDICTPATH  environment  variable.  It  is  an  error  if no data
       dictionary can be loaded.
