PROGRAM:

NAME


mHistogram - None

SYNOPSIS


mHistogram [-d] -file in.fits minrange maxrange [logpower/gaussian/gaussian-log] -out
out.hist

DESCRIPTION


The mViewer application makes PNG/JPEG files using FITS images as input. Part of that
processing involves analyzing the FITS files and creating a histogram that is used to
inform the transformation from pixel values to display colors/intensities. This
processing is done inside mViewer itself.

However, there are situations where it helps to have the histogram earlier. For instance,
you may have several images to process into PNGs and wish to use the same histogram-based
stretch for each one. Or you may want to generate a set of pixel values that give the
visual impression of a color bar (see mPad). Sometimes, you may just want the histogram
itself for display or analysis purposes.

The mHistogram module contains the same histogram code as mViewer but writes the results
out to an ASCII file which can then be read in by mHistogram, mPad or user programs.

OPTIONS


-d Turn on debugging.

-file in.fits minrange maxrange [logpower/gaussian/gaussian-log]
The FITS image file; stretch range; and (optionally) stretch mode. See the mViewer
documentation for more details.

-out out.hist
Output histogram (ASCII) file.

RESULT


If successful, the result is an ASCII file containing the histogram data, color table
lookup mapping, and some other information.
