Paper Abstract

A new language, compiler, and user interface has been developed, which facilitates the research and development of image processing algorithms. Algorithms are written in a high- level language specifically designed for image processing, and are compiled into machine code that performs as well as algorithms hand-cooled in the C language. The new language and compiler are introduced, and many examples are presented. Directions for future work relating to the user interface and support for parallel processing are proposed.
