pgmkernel


SYNOPSIS
       pgmkernel [ -weight w ] width [ height ]

DESCRIPTION
       Generates  a  portable graymap array of size width x height (or width x
       width if height is not specified) to be used as a convolution  file  by
       pnmconvol.   The data in the convolution array K are computed according
       to the formula:

       K(i,j) = 1 / ( 1 + w * sqrt((i-width/2)^2 + (j-height/2)^2))

       where w is a coefficient specified via the -weight flag, and width  and
       height are the X and Y filter sizes.

       The output PGM file is always written out in ASCII format.

OPTIONS
       The optional -weight flag should be a real number greater than -1.  The
       default value is 6.0.

BUGS
       The computation time is proportional to width * height.  This increases
       rapidly  with the increase of the kernel size.  A better approach could
       be using a FFT in these cases.
