Source code changes of the file "README.Cygwin" between
pfstools-2.1.0.tgz and pfstools-2.2.0.tgz

About: pfstools are a set of command line programs (and one GUI program) for reading, writing, manipulating, and viewing high-dynamic range (HDR) images and video frames (similar as the netpbm package does for low-dynamic range images).

You may need to install X window client to use pfsview or ====================================================
pfsglview. Possibly a better alternative is to use a natively compiled How to compile and install?
version of pfsview: ====================================================
This instruction was tested in August of 2021 with cygwin 3.2.0.
1. Install 64-bit version of cygwin from https://cygwin.com/index.html
2. Select the following cygwin packages:
libMagick-devel (IMPORTANT: must be version 6. pfstools is incompatible with ver
sion 7.)
Install the latest non-test release of each package.
The list does not include Qt and OpenGL packages so that pfsview will not be com
piled. As pfsview is rather awkward to use using an X window client, it is recom
mended to use a native win32 version instead, as explained in Step 7.
3. Open cygwin terminal and clone the latest version of pfstools:
git clone https://git.code.sf.net/p/pfstools/git pfstools
Alternatively, you can compile from a prepackaged ZIP file, though the version m
ay not be a bit outdated.
4. Using the cygwin terminal, create "build" directory and run cmake:
cd pfstools
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../
Ignore warnings about missing OpenGL, Qt and Matlab compiler. Do not set MATLAB_
MEX as the precompiled files will be installed in step 6.
5. Make and install:
make install
6. Matlab interface comes precompiled in the "pfstools_matlab" directory. Add th
is directory to the matlab path.
7. For pfsview image viewer, unzip the win32 version of pfstools, which can be d
ownloaded from:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/pfstools/files/pfstools_visual_studio_incomplet e/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/pfstools/files/pfstools_visual_studio_incomplet e/
Check README file for the complete list of dependencies. into "C:\Program Files (x86)\pfstools". Then, create a symbolic link (from Cygwi
n terminal):
ln -s "/cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/pfstools/bin/pfsview.exe" /usr/local/bin/
Repeat step 4 to install pfsv after the precompiled pfsview has been installed.
7. Test that everything works.
- In cygwin:
pfsin <any_image.hdr> | pfsview
- In matlab:
I = pfs_read_image( '<any_image>.hdr' );
pfsview( I );
You can download some HDR images from:
OpenEXR library must be build from sources since no cygwin development https://sourceforge.net/projects/pfstools/files/hdr_images/
package is available. Sources can be downloaded from
http://www.openexr.com/. It is recommended to use cmake to compile
