    dcmdata  - a data encoding/decoding library and utility apps
    dcmfg    - a library for working with functional groups
    dcmimage - adds support for color images to dcmimgle
    dcmimgle - an image processing library and utility apps
    dcmiod   - a library for working with information objects and modules
    dcmjpeg  - a compression/decompression library and utility apps
    dcmjpls  - a compression/decompression library and utility apps
