1.1 About Guile-CV

GNU Guile-CV
Image Processing and Analysis in Guile
a Computer Vision functional programming library

Guile-CV - Image Processing and Analysis in Guile - is a Computer Vision functional programming library for the Guile Scheme language.

Based on Vigra (Vision with Generic Algorithms - a C++ image processing and analysis library), Guile-CV comprises a direct binding to Vigra C (a C wrapper to most of the Vigra functionality), enriched with pure Guile scheme algorithms, all accessible through a nice, clean and easy to use high level API.

Guile-CV is natively multi-threaded, and takes advantage of multiple cores, using high-level and fine grained application-level parallelism constructs available in Guile, based on its support to POSIX threads.

Objective

Guile-CV objective is to be a robust, reliable and fast - Image Processing and Analysis - Computer Vision functional programming library for the Guile Scheme language. Guile-CV also wants to be easy to use, study, modify and extend.

Guile-CV can be used as an educational sofware, a research toolbox but it can also be used 'in production': Guile-CV is robust, reliable and fast, and we will make sure Guile-CV remains robust, reliable and fast as it grows.
