pgmtexture - calculate textural features on a portable graymap
pgmtexture [-d d] [pgmfile]
Reads a portable graymap as input. Calculates textural features based on spatial depen-
dence matrices at 0, 45, 90, and 135 degrees for a distance d (default = 1). Textural

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 coeffi-
cient, which requires finding the second largest eigenvalue of a matrix Q, does not always
