What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for a compound to give a positive Haloform Test (Iodoform test for instance)?

Is it necessary to have a [itex]CH_{3}CO-[/itex] group or is it necessary to have a [itex]XCH_{2}-[/itex] group where X is some group? Is the occurence of a [itex]CH_{3}CO-[/itex] group a sufficient condition?

I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this...

Thanks and cheers
