ipdskwir

This program reads a file from a queue and attempts to parse it as though it
was an IPTC or ANPA feed

Note FipHdr ZN will hold the Original filename before all the other fields are
added

    -l : do NOT log each msg in or out  default: log
    -n : name for this service      default: none
        This should be different from the incoming file. It is used
        to find the correct routing file in tables/route.
