We present here a development system which provides for both image processing and general program development in a common unified environment and is based on a modern state-of-the-art programming language Â¿ Modula-2. Although implemented on a relatively simple processor system (a DEC LSI-11/23), the design concept and image processing programs will transport to more powerful machines better suite...
