So, if I understand correctly

So, if I understand correctly, dcraw's -D -W -g11 command maps DNs of 12 or 14bit raws as such to a 16bit space because -D does not scale(restructure) DNs and the 16bit space is universal for all the available raw files. On the other hand, -d -W -g 11 command scales DNs to be mapped(fit) to the 16bit space. Taking 'scale_colors' into account, result from -D-W-g11-b16 would be roughly similar with one from -d -W -g11-r1111 when decoding a 14bit with 0-16383DNs. Is this the story ? In that case, "a fixed white level" of -W command would mean simply no setting of white level, isnt it ?
