img-raw — Img, Raw Data Format (raw)

Synopsis

package require Tk

package require img::raw ?1.4?

image create photo ?name? ?options?

Description

The package img::raw is a sub-package of Img. It can be loaded as a part of the complete Img support, via package require Img, or on its own, via package require img::raw.

Like all packages of Img it does not provide new commands, but extends the existing Tk command image so that it supports files containing raster images in the Raw Data Format (raw). More specifically img::raw extends Tk's photo image type.

The name of the new format handler is raw. This handler provides new additional configuration options. See section Raw Options for more detailed explanations.

All of the above means that in a call like

image create photo ?name? ?options?

[1]
Image data in raw format (options -data and -file) is detected automatically.
[2]
The format name raw is recognized by the option -format. In addition the value for the option is treated as list and may contain any of the special options listed in section Raw Options.

Note

This format handler must be loaded explicitly with package require img::raw.

Supported Raw Types

Grayscale image:  1 channel  of 32-bit floating point   values.
                  1 channel  of 16-bit unsigned integer values.
                  1 channel  of  8-bit unsigned integer values.
True-color image: 3 channels of 32-bit floating point   values.
                  3 channels of 16-bit unsigned integer values.
                  3 channels of  8-bit unsigned integer values.

List of currently supported features:

Type   |     Read      |     Write     |
       | -file | -data | -file | -data |
----------------------------------------
Gray   | Yes   | Yes   | Yes   | Yes   |
RGB    | Yes   | Yes   | Yes   | Yes   |

There are 2 supported file formats:
One with the pure raw data only, the other with a 7 line ASCII header
of the following form:

    Magic=RAW\n          File format identifier. Fixed value.
    Width=128\n          Image width in pixels.
    Height=128\n         Image height in pixels.
    NumChan=1\n          Possible values: 1 or 3.
    ByteOrder=Intel\n    Possible values: "Intel" or "Motorola".
    ScanOrder=TopDown\n  Possible values: "TopDown" or "BottomUp".
    PixelType=byte\n     Possible values: "float", "short" or "byte".

Raw Options

The handler provides the following options:

-verbose bool
This option is supported for reading and writing.

If set to true, additional information about the loaded/stored image is printed to stdout. Default is false.
-useheader bool
This option is supported for reading and writing.

If set to true, use the file header information for reading and writing. Default is true.
-nchan int
This option is supported for reading and writing image data without header.

Specify the number of channels of the input image. Default is 1.
-width int
This option is supported for reading image data without header only.

Specify the width of the input image. Default is 128.
-height int
This option is supported for reading image data without header only.

Specify the height of the input image. Default is 128.
-byteorder string
This option is supported for reading image data without header only.

Specify the byteorder of the input image data. Possible values: Intel or Motorola. Default is assuming the same byteorder as that of the host computer.
-uuencode bool
This option is supported for reading image data without header only.

If set to false, do not assume, that the image data stored in a Tcl variable is uuencoded. Default is true, i.e. the image data in a Tcl variable is assumed to be uuencoded.
-scanorder string
This option is supported for reading and writing image data without header.

Specify the scanline order of the input image. Possible values: TopDown or BottomUp. Default is assuming the same byteorder as that of the host computer.
-pixeltype string
This option is supported for reading image data without header only.

Specify the type of the pixel values. Possible values: float or short or byte. Default is byte.

RAW files are always written in byte pixel format.
-gamma float
This option is supported for reading only.

Specify a gamma correction to be applied when mapping the input data to 8-bit image values. Default is 1.0.
-nomap bool
This option is supported for reading only.

If set to true, no mapping of input values is done. Use this option, if your image already contains RGB values in the range of 0 .. 255. Default is false.
-min float
This option is supported for reading only.

Specify the minimum pixel value to be used for mapping the input data to 8-bit image values. Default is the minimum value found in the image data.
-max float
This option is supported for reading only.

Specify the maximum pixel value to be used for mapping the input data to 8-bit image values. Default is the maximum value found in the image data.
