AnImaL - AN IMAging Library DESCRIPTION =========== AnImaL is an imaging and computer vision library written in C. Differently from most other toolkits, it is intended to provide the maximum functionality by making strong usage of similar libraries. It is intended to be a common API to the best free imaging and computer vision libraries already available, such as ImageMagick. By defining a common API and using external libraries, AnImaL selects the best implementation available in them to implement a particular algorithm. This way AnImaL unites the best from the other libraries it uses. Of course, AnImaL has its own implementations for many routines. But whenever possible, it uses a external routines. This code reuse makes development much faster than monolithic libraries, which have to implement their own solution for everything, ignoring excellent code already available out there. AnImaL is fairly portable, like the other libraries it uses. INSTALLATION ============ Please read the INSTALL.txt file EXAMPLES ======== See the EXAMPLES.txt in the src directory for instructions on how to compile programs that use AnImaL. HISTORICAL NOTES ================ Animal was created for SIP, the Scilab Image Processing toolbox (http://siptoolbox.sourceforge.net). It has become independent of SIP and Scilab, but it has influences from its origins. For example, FFT and some other numerical operations are not yet implemented in Animal, as its primary author uses Scilab for this. It is our purpose to use/merge a library like Gandalf for some linear algebra and computer vision algorithms (http://gandalf-library.sf.net). We started doing this in Animal 0.6.0. We have been improving Gandalf by merging enhanced versions of it into Animal instead of improving Gandalf directly. Copyright (c) 2003-2011 Ricardo Fabbri <email@example.com>
