Abstract : The DIMES User's Handbook gives full details of how to use DIMES programs to carry out a series of processing steps on a digitized image which has been stored in a raster format on magnetic tape or disk. DIMES operates on image data by means of a modular library of image manipulation and enhancement programs. The user selects which programs are to operate on the data through a flexible command language. This language also allocates tape and/or disk image files and tranfers user-supplied parameters to each processing routing. This handbook contains an introduction which summarizes the general capabilities of the DIMES system. Next, information is supplied as to how to set up an image processing run deck for execution on the Control Data Corporation (CDC) 6600 computer. CDC control cards are described and the DIMES command language is fully explained. The first section contains descriptions of each task program, including a brief summary, description of inputs and outputs, parameters, restrictions, examples, and timing estimates. Remaining sections describe printer output, special DIMES utility program capabilities, examples of some typical DIMES applications, and a list of DIMES error messages. (Author)
