FLOYD(9.1)							    FLOYD(9.1)

NAME
       floyd, halftone,	hysteresis - create 1-bit images by dithering

SYNOPSIS
       fb/floyd	[ input	]

       fb/halftone screen [ input ]

       fb/hysteresis low high [	input ]

DESCRIPTION
       Floyd  reads  a	grey-scale  input  file	 (default standard input), and
       reduces it to one bit per pixel using  Floyd-Steinberg  error-diffusion
       dither,	as  improved  by  Ulichney.  The resulting TYPE=bitmap picture
       file is written to standard output.

       Ulichney's algorithm involves randomly varying the Floyd-Steinberg dif-
       fusion coefficients.  As	the random number generator is seeded from the
       clock, floyd may	produce	different output if rerun on the same input.

       Halftone	reduces	grey-scale images to one bit per pixel	using  ordered
       dither.	 The screen argument is	the name of a file containing a	dither
       matrix.	Halftone searches for screens in /lib/fb/screens.

       Hysteresis creates one-bit-per-pixel images by thresholding  with  hys-
       teresis.	 Any value in the input	image less than	low is mapped to zero.
       Any input value less than high is mapped	to zero	if any	of  its	 eight
       neighbors is less than low.  If low and high are	equal, this is just an
       ordinary	thresholding operation.

       Hysteresis makes	a useful edge-detection	operator if used  on  a	 high-
       pass filtered image.
