outputs,

Warning!
The read functions are not fully implemented as defined in
the file-format standards. Do not use this function for
critical applications.

Question,
If you know an example file of GE_Version_4, GE_Version_5 or some other often used 3D medical format, please leave a comment (so I can implement that format).
