The user can verify the accordance between the data and description of the data using this task. The command examines the data in the PDB system files: the number and the type of fields declared, the presence of coordinate fields and the sort keys. Moreover the task reads the catalogues and searches for: format errors in the numerical fields, range errors in the coordinates or sort errors. The errors detected will be written on the screen and in the report file.
