|bwfilter [-f type] [-v] [-d div] [-o offset] [-s squaresize] [-w width] [-n height] [file.bw] > newfile.bw|
Bwfilter applies one of several 3x3 kernel filters to a black and white bw(5) format file. It will take a file name or else read from standard input. The input file size will be assumed to be 512x512 pixels unless the -s, -w, or -n flags are used to tell it otherwise (see brlcad(1)). By default a low pass filter is used. The -f type flag can be used to specify a different type of filter.
The type choices include:
lolow pass, the default.
bboxcar low pass
Most filters divide the result of the kernel multiplication by some value about in order to scale it back to a 0->255 range. For example, the boxcar divides by nine. The -d flag can be used to change this divisor. Some filters also add an offset to their results. The output of a laplacian for example is "centered" about zero, thus it adds 128 to the answer to yield a difference from neutral grey. The -o flag can bw used to change this offset.
The -v flag displays the kernel values on standard error.
This should allow any 3x3 kernel to be specified.
