PASTE: Paste subimage into an image
INNAME Input image name
INCLASS Input image class
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Input image seq. #
INDISK 0.0 9.0 Input image disk. #
PIXXY Alignment point in image
OPCODE Algorithm type:
'REPL', 'ADD '
IN2NAME Subimage name
IN2CLASS Subimage class
IN2SEQ 0.0 9999.0 Subimage seq. #
IN2DISK 0.0 9.0 Subimage disk. #
BLC 0.0 4096.0 Bottom left corner
TRC 0.0 4096.0 Top right corner
PIX2XY Alignment point in subimage
FACTOR Subimage factor
OFFSET Subimage offset
OUTNAME Output image name
OUTCLASS Output image class
OUTSEQ -1.0 9999.0 Output image seq. #, 0=> new
OUTDISK 0.0 9.0 Output image disk drive #
Use: Inserts or adds a selected subimage into an image. The
alignment of the subimage with the image is defined by
PIXXY and PIX2XY. In replace 'REPL' mode, blanked pixels in
the subimage do not replace the corresponding pixels in the
output image. Note: no check is made on the validity of the
The output image may be the input image.
INNAME.....The input image name. Standard defaults.
INCLASS....The input image class. Standard defaults.
INSEQ......The input image sequence number. 0 => high
INDISK.....The input image disk drive no. 0 => any
PIXXY......Pixel in INNAME etc. to be used to align with
pixels in IN2NAME; this pixel will be replaced by
pixel PIX2XY in IN2NAME etc. (if that pixel is in
the subimage of IN2NAME).
0 => image reference pixel.
'REPL' = replace pixel values in OUTNAME with
unblanked pixel value from INNAME.
'ADD ' = sum corresponding unblanked pixel values;
blanked values are not considered for the sum.
IN2NAME....The subimage name to be inserted.
IN2CLASS...The subimage class. Standard defaults.
IN2SEQ.....The subimage sequence number. 0 => high
IN2DISK....The subimage disk drive no. 0 => any
PIX2XY.....Alignment point in subimage. See PIXXY.
The alignment pixel need not be in the subimage.
0 => subimage reference pixel.
BLC........Bottom left corner in INNAME etc. defining one
corner of selected subimage. 0 => all.
TRC........Top right corner in INNAME etc. defining other
corner of selected subimage. 0=> all
FACTOR.....Subimage pixels will be multiplied by FACTOR.
Value_used = old_value*FACTOR + OFFSET
0 => 1.0
OFFSET.....Subimage pixels will have OFFSET added.
OUTNAME....Output Image name, may be the same as INNAME.
OUTCLASS...Output Image class to be modified.
OUTSEQ.....Output Image seq. no., 0=> make a new image.
OUTDISK....Output Image disk no.
