Typical usage

Simple usage

       In order to display all the value for Patient Name (0010,0010) in the
       directory name gdcmData, simply do:

       $ gdcmscanner -t 10,10 -d gdcmData -p

Complex usage

       Because gdcmscanner does not support progress, you have to wait until
       all files are traversed to see any results. This is quite cumbersome,
       on linux this can be worked around with the following trick:

       $ find gdcmData -type d -exec gdcmscanner -t 10,10 -d {} -p ;

       So all directory are locally traversed (no child directory are
       recursively traversed), which means results comes out much faster.
