Paper Abstract

We present details of the EIKONIX Picture Processing Language, EPPL. The language was developed for use on Digital Equipment Corporation's PDP-ll and VAX computers to allow rapid acquisitions, manipulation, and display of digital images. We discuss the hardware that the language supports, the software architecture, the modes of data transfer and storage, the Parameter Set concept which simplifies user specifications of data and opera-tions, and typical image processing functions.
