[WAILI Logo] WAILI -- Wavelets with Integer Lifting

Introduction

WAILI is a wavelet transform library. It includes some basic image processing operations based on the use of wavelets and forms the backbone of more complex image processing operations.

Features

WAILI

WAILI.xl is a version of WAILI with Extensions for Very Large Images. Very large images are divided in blocks, which do not necessarily have to be present in the computer system's main memory. WAILI.xl provides most of the operations implemented in WAILI.

Implementation

The software library is written in C++ and extensively uses features of the ISO C++ 97 Standard to allow for a cleaner design. The development was done under Linux/ia32 2.0.x and 2.2.x, using GNU C++ 2.7.2.x, and later egcs. It was tested under Solaris/SPARC 2.5 and 2.6, and on various other Linux platforms (m68k, PPC, AXP).
