Nice answer It really helped me though ..... for those who did not understood ...... when u look at the contents of rdsk and dsk they are the same but the difference is in the way and where they operate .... like rdsk will directly operate on the driver tht's more of the hardware side while dsk will operate on the processes more of the software side .... if thr's any error in my answer plz do reply Smilie

.DSK to .IMG ?

Hi, I have a windows emulator that I am wanting to try out, but my Windows 3.1 files are split up over 6 .DSK images, and I need to convert them to an .IMG that I can actually mount on my system (so that the emulator can see it). Is there a way to do this? thanks. -patrick (0 Replies)

pgmtexture - calculate textural features on a portable graymap SYNOPSIS
pgmtexture [-d d] [pgmfile] DESCRIPTION
Reads a portable graymap as input. Calculates textural features based on spatial dependence matrices at 0, 45, 90, and 135 degrees for a distance d (default = 1). Textural features include: (1) Angular Second Moment, (2) Contrast, (3) Correlation, (4) Variance, (5) Inverse Difference Moment, (6) Sum Average, (7) Sum Variance, (8) Sum Entropy, (9) Entropy, (10) Difference Variance, (11) Difference Entropy, (12, 13) Information Measures of Correlation, and (14) Maximal Correlation Coefficient. Algorithm taken from: Haralick, R.M., K. Shanmugam, and I. Dinstein. 1973. Textural features for image classification. IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybertinetics, SMC-3(6):610-621. BUGS
The program can run incredibly slow for large images (larger than 64 x 64) and command line options are limited. The method for finding (14) the maximal correlation coefficient, which requires finding the second largest eigenvalue of a matrix Q, does not always converge. REFERENCES
