NAME
       pgmkernel - generate a convolution kernel

SYNOPSIS
       pgmkernel [-weight w] width  [height ]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pgmkernel  generates  a convolution kernel that you can use with pnmconvol.  The kernel is
       one where the weight of each location is inversely proportional to its distance	from  the
       center of the kernel.

       pgmkernel  generates  a	PGM image of size width by height (or width by width if you don't
       specify height.

       pgmkernel computes the convolution function K as follows.

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

       where w is a coefficient specified via the -weight option.  i and j are measured  in  pix-
       els.  K is zero everywhere beyond the specified kernel width and height.

       pgmkernel generates the output PGM file in the Plain (text) variation of PGM.

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

LIMITATIONS
       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.
