FUNCTIONS

pixColumnStats

l_int32 pixColumnStats ( PIX *pixs, BOX *box, NUMA **pnamean, NUMA **pnamedian, NUMA **pnamode, NUMA **pnamodecount, NUMA **pnavar, NUMA **pnarootvar )

  pixColumnStats()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp; not cmapped)
              box (<optional> clipping box; can be null)
              &namean (<optional return> numa of mean values)
              &namedian (<optional return> numa of median values)
              &namode (<optional return> numa of mode intensity values)
              &namodecount (<optional return> numa of mode counts)
              &navar (<optional return> numa of variance)
              &narootvar (<optional return> numa of square root of variance)
      Return: na (numa of requested statistic for each column),
                  or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) This computes numas that represent row vectors of statistics,
          with each of its values derived from the corresponding col of a Pix.
      (2) Use NULL on input to prevent computation of any of the 5 numas.
      (3) Other functions that compute pixel column statistics are:
             pixCountPixelsByColumn()
             pixAverageByColumn()
             pixVarianceByColumn()
             pixGetColumnStats()

pixDisplayColorArray

PIX * pixDisplayColorArray ( l_uint32 *carray, l_int32 ncolors, l_int32 side, l_int32 ncols, l_int32 textflag )

  pixDisplayColorArray()

      Input:  carray (array of colors: 0xrrggbb00)
              ncolors (size of array)
              side (size of each color square; suggest 200)
              ncols (number of columns in output color matrix)
              textflag (1 to label each square with text; 0 otherwise)
      Return: pixd (color array), or null on error

pixGetAverageMasked

l_int32 pixGetAverageMasked ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor, l_int32 type, l_float32 *pval )

  pixGetAverageMasked()

      Input:  pixs (8 or 16 bpp, or colormapped)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which average is to be taken;
                    use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0)
              factor (subsampling factor; >= 1)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE,
                    L_STANDARD_DEVIATION, L_VARIANCE)
              &val (<return> measured value of given 'type')
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) Use L_MEAN_ABSVAL to get the average value of pixels in pixs
          that are under the fg of the optional mask.  If the mask
          is null, it finds the average of the pixels in pixs.
      (2) Likewise, use L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE to get the rms value of
          pixels in pixs, either masked or not; L_STANDARD_DEVIATION
          to get the standard deviation from the mean of the pixels;
          L_VARIANCE to get the average squared difference from the
          expected value.  The variance is the square of the stdev.
          For the standard deviation, we use
              sqrt(<(<x> - x)>^2) = sqrt(<x^2> - <x>^2)
      (3) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of
          computation.
      (4) Clipping of pixm (if it exists) to pixs is done in the inner loop.
      (5) Input x,y are ignored unless pixm exists.

pixGetAverageMaskedRGB

l_int32 pixGetAverageMaskedRGB ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor, l_int32 type, l_float32 *prval, l_float32 *pgval, l_float32 *pbval )

  pixGetAverageMaskedRGB()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp, or colormapped)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which average is to be taken;
                    use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0)
              factor (subsampling factor; >= 1)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE,
                    L_STANDARD_DEVIATION, L_VARIANCE)
              &rval (<return optional> measured red value of given 'type')
              &gval (<return optional> measured green value of given 'type')
              &bval (<return optional> measured blue value of given 'type')
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) For usage, see pixGetAverageMasked().
      (2) If there is a colormap, it is removed before the 8 bpp
          component images are extracted.

pixGetAverageTiled

PIX * pixGetAverageTiled ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 sx, l_int32 sy, l_int32 type )

  pixGetAverageTiled()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp, or colormapped)
              sx, sy (tile size; must be at least 2 x 2)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE, L_STANDARD_DEVIATION)
      Return: pixd (average values in each tile), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) Only computes for tiles that are entirely contained in pixs.
      (2) Use L_MEAN_ABSVAL to get the average abs value within the tile;
          L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE to get the rms value within each tile;
          L_STANDARD_DEVIATION to get the standard dev. from the average
          within each tile.
      (3) If colormapped, converts to 8 bpp gray.

pixGetAverageTiledRGB

l_int32 pixGetAverageTiledRGB ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 sx, l_int32 sy, l_int32 type, PIX **ppixr, PIX **ppixg, PIX **ppixb )

  pixGetAverageTiledRGB()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp, or colormapped)
              sx, sy (tile size; must be at least 2 x 2)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE, L_STANDARD_DEVIATION)
              &pixr (<optional return> tiled 'average' of red component)
              &pixg (<optional return> tiled 'average' of green component)
              &pixb (<optional return> tiled 'average' of blue component)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) For usage, see pixGetAverageTiled().
      (2) If there is a colormap, it is removed before the 8 bpp
          component images are extracted.

pixGetAverageValue

l_int32 pixGetAverageValue ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor, l_int32 type, l_uint32 *pvalue )

  pixGetAverageValue()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp, 32 bpp or colormapped)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_ROOT_MEAN_SQUARE,
                    L_STANDARD_DEVIATION, L_VARIANCE)
              &value (<return> pixel value corresponding to input rank)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) Simple function to get average statistical values of an image.

pixGetBinnedColor

l_int32 pixGetBinnedColor ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixg, l_int32 factor, l_int32 nbins, NUMA *nalut, l_uint32 **pcarray, l_int32 debugflag )

  pixGetBinnedColor()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp)
              pixg (8 bpp grayscale version of pixs)
              factor (sampling factor along pixel counting direction)
              nbins (number of intensity bins)
              nalut (LUT for mapping from intensity to bin number)
              &carray (<return> array of average color values in each bin)
              debugflag (1 to display output debug plots of color
                         components; 2 to write them as png to file)
      Return: 0 if OK; 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This takes a color image, a grayscale (intensity) version,
          a LUT from intensity to bin number, and the number of bins.
          It computes the average color for pixels whose intensity
          is in each bin.  This is returned as an array of l_uint32
          colors in our standard RGBA ordering.
      (2) This function generates equal width intensity bins and
          finds the average color in each bin.  Compare this with
          pixGetRankColorArray(), which rank orders the pixels
          by the value of the selected component in each pixel,
          sets up bins with equal population (not intensity width!),
          and gets the average color in each bin.

pixGetBinnedComponentRange

l_int32 pixGetBinnedComponentRange ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 nbins, l_int32 factor, l_int32 color, l_int32 *pminval, l_int32 *pmaxval, l_uint32 **pcarray, l_int32 debugflag )

  pixGetBinnedComponentRange()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp rgb)
              nbins (number of equal population bins; must be > 1)
              factor (subsampling factor; >= 1)
              color (L_SELECT_RED, L_SELECT_GREEN or L_SELECT_BLUE)
              &minval (<optional return> minimum value of component)
              &maxval (<optional return> maximum value of component)
              &carray (<optional return> color array of bins)
              debugflag (1 for debug output)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This returns the min and max average values of the
          selected color component in the set of rank bins,
          where the ranking is done using the specified component.

pixGetCmapHistogram

NUMA * pixGetCmapHistogram ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor )

  pixGetCmapHistogram()

      Input:  pixs (colormapped: d = 2, 4 or 8)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
      Return: na (histogram of cmap indices), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) This generates a histogram of colormap pixel indices,
          and is of size 2^d.
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.

pixGetCmapHistogramInRect

NUMA * pixGetCmapHistogramInRect ( PIX *pixs, BOX *box, l_int32 factor )

  pixGetCmapHistogramInRect()

      Input:  pixs (colormapped: d = 2, 4 or 8)
              box (<optional>) over which histogram is to be computed;
                   use full image if null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
      Return: na (histogram), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) This generates a histogram of colormap pixel indices,
          and is of size 2^d.
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.
      (3) Clipping to the box is done in the inner loop.

pixGetCmapHistogramMasked

NUMA * pixGetCmapHistogramMasked ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor )

  pixGetCmapHistogramMasked()

      Input:  pixs (colormapped: d = 2, 4 or 8)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which histogram is
                    to be computed; use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0; these values are ignored if pixm is null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
      Return: na (histogram), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) This generates a histogram of colormap pixel indices,
          and is of size 2^d.
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.
      (3) Clipping of pixm to pixs is done in the inner loop.

pixGetColorHistogram

l_int32 pixGetColorHistogram ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor, NUMA **pnar, NUMA **pnag, NUMA **pnab )

  pixGetColorHistogram()

      Input:  pixs (rgb or colormapped)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              &nar (<return> red histogram)
              &nag (<return> green histogram)
              &nab (<return> blue histogram)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This generates a set of three 256 entry histograms,
          one for each color component (r,g,b).
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.

pixGetColorHistogramMasked

l_int32 pixGetColorHistogramMasked ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor, NUMA **pnar, NUMA **pnag, NUMA **pnab )

  pixGetColorHistogramMasked()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp rgb, or colormapped)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which histogram is
                    to be computed; use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0; these values are ignored if pixm is null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              &nar (<return> red histogram)
              &nag (<return> green histogram)
              &nab (<return> blue histogram)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This generates a set of three 256 entry histograms,
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.
      (3) Clipping of pixm (if it exists) to pixs is done in the inner loop.
      (4) Input x,y are ignored unless pixm exists.

pixGetColumnStats

l_int32 pixGetColumnStats ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 type, l_int32 nbins, l_int32 thresh, l_float32 *rowvect )

  pixGetColumnStats()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp; not cmapped)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_MEDIAN_VAL, L_MODE_VAL, L_MODE_COUNT)
              nbins (of histogram for median and mode; ignored for mean)
              thresh (on histogram for mode val; ignored for all other types)
              rowvect (vector of results gathered down the columns of pixs)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This computes a row vector of statistics using each
          column of a Pix.  The result is put in @rowvect.
      (2) The @thresh parameter works with L_MODE_VAL only, and
          sets a minimum occupancy of the mode bin.
          If the occupancy of the mode bin is less than @thresh, the
          mode value is returned as 0.  To always return the actual
          mode value, set @thresh = 0.
      (3) What is the meaning of this @thresh parameter?
          For each column, the total count in the histogram is h, the
          image height.  So @thresh, relative to h, gives a measure
          of the ratio of the bin width to the width of the distribution.
          The larger @thresh, the narrower the distribution must be
          for the mode value to be returned (instead of returning 0).

pixGetComponentRange

l_int32 pixGetComponentRange ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor, l_int32 color, l_int32 *pminval, l_int32 *pmaxval )

  pixGetComponentRange()

              factor (subsampling factor; >= 1; ignored if colormapped)
              color (L_SELECT_RED, L_SELECT_GREEN or L_SELECT_BLUE)
              &minval (<optional return> minimum value of component)
              &maxval (<optional return> maximum value of component)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) If pixs is 8 bpp grayscale, the color selection type is ignored.

pixGetExtremeValue

l_int32 pixGetExtremeValue ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor, l_int32 type, l_int32 *prval, l_int32 *pgval, l_int32 *pbval, l_int32 *pgrayval )

  pixGetExtremeValue()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp grayscale, 32 bpp rgb, or colormapped)
              factor (subsampling factor; >= 1; ignored if colormapped)
              type (L_SELECT_MIN or L_SELECT_MAX)
              &rval (<optional return> red component)
              &gval (<optional return> green component)
              &bval (<optional return> blue component)
              &grayval (<optional return> min or max gray value)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) If pixs is grayscale, the result is returned in &grayval.
          Otherwise, if there is a colormap or d == 32,
          each requested color component is returned.  At least
          one color component (address) must be input.

pixGetGrayHistogram

NUMA * pixGetGrayHistogram ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor )

  pixGetGrayHistogram()

      Input:  pixs (1, 2, 4, 8, 16 bpp; can be colormapped)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
      Return: na (histogram), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) If pixs has a colormap, it is converted to 8 bpp gray.
          If you want a histogram of the colormap indices, use
          pixGetCmapHistogram().
      (2) If pixs does not have a colormap, the output histogram is
          of size 2^d, where d is the depth of pixs.
      (3) This always returns a 256-value histogram of pixel values.
      (4) Set the subsampling factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.

pixGetGrayHistogramInRect

NUMA * pixGetGrayHistogramInRect ( PIX *pixs, BOX *box, l_int32 factor )

  pixGetGrayHistogramInRect()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp, or colormapped)
              box (<optional>) over which histogram is to be computed;
                   use full image if null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
      Return: na (histogram), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) If pixs is cmapped, it is converted to 8 bpp gray.
          If you want a histogram of the colormap indices, use
          pixGetCmapHistogramInRect().
      (2) This always returns a 256-value histogram of pixel values.
      (3) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.

pixGetGrayHistogramMasked

NUMA * pixGetGrayHistogramMasked ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor )

  pixGetGrayHistogramMasked()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp, or colormapped)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which histogram is
                    to be computed; use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0; these values are ignored if pixm is null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
      Return: na (histogram), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) If pixs is cmapped, it is converted to 8 bpp gray.
          If you want a histogram of the colormap indices, use
          pixGetCmapHistogramMasked().
      (2) This always returns a 256-value histogram of pixel values.
      (3) Set the subsampling factor > 1 to reduce the amount of computation.
      (4) Clipping of pixm (if it exists) to pixs is done in the inner loop.
      (5) Input x,y are ignored unless pixm exists.

pixGetMaxValueInRect

l_int32 pixGetMaxValueInRect ( PIX *pixs, BOX *box, l_uint32 *pmaxval, l_int32 *pxmax, l_int32 *pymax )

  pixGetMaxValueInRect()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp or 32 bpp grayscale; no color space components)
              box (<optional> region; set box = NULL to use entire pixs)
              &maxval (<optional return> max value in region)
              &xmax (<optional return> x location of max value)
              &ymax (<optional return> y location of max value)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This can be used to find the maximum and its location
          in a 2-dimensional histogram, where the x and y directions
          represent two color components (e.g., saturation and hue).
      (2) Note that here a 32 bpp pixs has pixel values that are simply
          numbers.  They are not 8 bpp components in a colorspace.

pixGetRankColorArray

l_int32 pixGetRankColorArray ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 nbins, l_int32 type, l_int32 factor, l_uint32 **pcarray, l_int32 debugflag )

  pixGetRankColorArray()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp or cmapped)
              nbins (number of equal population bins; must be > 1)
              type (color selection flag)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              &carray (<return> array of colors, ranked by intensity)
              debugflag (1 to display color squares and plots of color
                         components; 2 to write them as png to file)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) The color selection flag is one of: L_SELECT_RED, L_SELECT_GREEN,
          L_SELECT_BLUE, L_SELECT_MIN, L_SELECT_MAX.
      (2) Then it finds the histogram of the selected component in each
          RGB pixel.  For each of the @nbins sets of pixels,
          ordered by this component value, find the average color,
          and return this as a "rank color" array.  The output array
          has @nbins colors.
      (3) Set the subsampling factor > 1 to reduce the amount of
          computation.  Typically you want at least 10,000 pixels
          for reasonable statistics.
      (4) The rank color as a function of rank can then be found from
             rankint = (l_int32)(rank * (nbins - 1) + 0.5);
             extractRGBValues(array[rankint], &rval, &gval, &bval);
          where the rank is in [0.0 ... 1.0].
          This function is meant to be simple and approximate.
      (5) Compare this with pixGetBinnedColor(), which generates equal
          width intensity bins and finds the average color in each bin.

pixGetRankValue

l_int32 pixGetRankValue ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor, l_float32 rank, l_uint32 *pvalue )

  pixGetRankValue()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp, 32 bpp or colormapped)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              rank (between 0.0 and 1.0; 1.0 is brightest, 0.0 is darkest)
              &value (<return> pixel value corresponding to input rank)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) Simple function to get rank values of an image.
          For a color image, the median value (rank = 0.5) can be
          used to linearly remap the colors based on the median
          of a target image, using pixLinearMapToTargetColor().

pixGetRankValueMasked

l_int32 pixGetRankValueMasked ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor, l_float32 rank, l_float32 *pval, NUMA **pna )

  pixGetRankValueMasked()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp, or colormapped)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which rank val is to be taken;
                    use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0; these values are ignored if pixm is null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              rank (between 0.0 and 1.0; 1.0 is brightest, 0.0 is darkest)
              &val (<return> pixel value corresponding to input rank)
              &na (<optional return> of histogram)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) Computes the rank value of pixels in pixs that are under
          the fg of the optional mask.  If the mask is null, it
          computes the average of the pixels in pixs.
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of
          computation.
      (3) Clipping of pixm (if it exists) to pixs is done in the inner loop.
      (4) Input x,y are ignored unless pixm exists.
      (5) The rank must be in [0.0 ... 1.0], where the brightest pixel
          has rank 1.0.  For the median pixel value, use 0.5.
      (6) The histogram can optionally be returned, so that other rank
          values can be extracted without recomputing the histogram.
          In that case, just use
              numaHistogramGetValFromRank(na, rank, &val);
          on the returned Numa for additional rank values.

pixGetRankValueMaskedRGB

l_int32 pixGetRankValueMaskedRGB ( PIX *pixs, PIX *pixm, l_int32 x, l_int32 y, l_int32 factor, l_float32 rank, l_float32 *prval, l_float32 *pgval, l_float32 *pbval )

  pixGetRankValueMaskedRGB()

      Input:  pixs (32 bpp)
              pixm (<optional> 1 bpp mask over which rank val is to be taken;
                    use all pixels if null)
              x, y (UL corner of pixm relative to the UL corner of pixs;
                    can be < 0; these values are ignored if pixm is null)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              rank (between 0.0 and 1.0; 1.0 is brightest, 0.0 is darkest)
              &rval (<optional return> red component val for to input rank)
              &gval (<optional return> green component val for to input rank)
              &bval (<optional return> blue component val for to input rank)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) Computes the rank component values of pixels in pixs that
          are under the fg of the optional mask.  If the mask is null, it
          computes the average of the pixels in pixs.
      (2) Set the subsampling @factor > 1 to reduce the amount of
          computation.
      (4) Input x,y are ignored unless pixm exists.
      (5) The rank must be in [0.0 ... 1.0], where the brightest pixel
          has rank 1.0.  For the median pixel value, use 0.5.

pixGetRowStats

l_int32 pixGetRowStats ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 type, l_int32 nbins, l_int32 thresh, l_float32 *colvect )

  pixGetRowStats()

      Input:  pixs (8 bpp; not cmapped)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_MEDIAN_VAL, L_MODE_VAL, L_MODE_COUNT)
              nbins (of histogram for median and mode; ignored for mean)
              thresh (on histogram for mode; ignored for mean and median)
              colvect (vector of results gathered across the rows of pixs)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) This computes a column vector of statistics using each
          row of a Pix.  The result is put in @colvect.
      (2) The @thresh parameter works with L_MODE_VAL only, and
          sets a minimum occupancy of the mode bin.
          If the occupancy of the mode bin is less than @thresh, the
          mode value is returned as 0.  To always return the actual
          mode value, set @thresh = 0.
      (3) What is the meaning of this @thresh parameter?
          For each row, the total count in the histogram is w, the
          image width.  So @thresh, relative to w, gives a measure
          of the ratio of the bin width to the width of the distribution.
          The larger @thresh, the narrower the distribution must be
          for the mode value to be returned (instead of returning 0).
      (4) If the Pix consists of a set of corresponding columns,
          one for each Pix in a Pixa, the width of the Pix is the
          number of Pix in the Pixa and the column vector can
          be stored as a column in a Pix of the same size as
          each Pix in the Pixa.

pixRowStats

l_int32 pixRowStats ( PIX *pixs, BOX *box, NUMA **pnamean, NUMA **pnamedian, NUMA **pnamode, NUMA **pnamodecount, NUMA **pnavar, NUMA **pnarootvar )

              &namedian (<optional return> numa of median values)
              &namode (<optional return> numa of mode intensity values)
              &namodecount (<optional return> numa of mode counts)
              &navar (<optional return> numa of variance)
              &narootvar (<optional return> numa of square root of variance)
      Return: na (numa of requested statistic for each row), or null on error

  Notes:
      (1) This computes numas that represent column vectors of statistics,
          with each of its values derived from the corresponding row of a Pix.
      (2) Use NULL on input to prevent computation of any of the 5 numas.
      (3) Other functions that compute pixel row statistics are:
             pixCountPixelsByRow()
             pixAverageByRow()
             pixVarianceByRow()
             pixGetRowStats()

  pixSetPixelColumn()

      Input:  pix (8 bpp; not cmapped)
              col (column index)
              colvect (vector of floats)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

pixSplitDistributionFgBg

l_int32 pixSplitDistributionFgBg ( PIX *pixs, l_float32 scorefract, l_int32 factor, l_int32 *pthresh, l_int32 *pfgval, l_int32 *pbgval, l_int32 debugflag )

  pixSplitDistributionFgBg()

      Input:  pixs (any depth; cmapped ok)
              scorefract (fraction of the max score, used to determine
                          the range over which the histogram min is searched)
              factor (subsampling factor; integer >= 1)
              &thresh (<optional return> best threshold for separating)
              &fgval (<optional return> average foreground value)
              &bgval (<optional return> average background value)
              debugflag (1 for plotting of distribution and split point)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

  Notes:
      (1) See numaSplitDistribution() for details on the underlying
          method of choosing a threshold.

pixThresholdForFgBg

l_int32 pixThresholdForFgBg ( PIX *pixs, l_int32 factor, l_int32 thresh, l_int32 *pfgval, l_int32 *pbgval )

      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

pixaExtractColumnFromEachPix

l_int32 pixaExtractColumnFromEachPix ( PIXA *pixa, l_int32 col, PIX *pixd )

  pixaExtractColumnFromEachPix()

      Input:  pixa (of identically sized, 8 bpp; not cmapped)
              col (column index)
              pixd (pix into which each column is inserted)
      Return: 0 if OK, 1 on error

pixaGetAlignedStats

PIX * pixaGetAlignedStats ( PIXA *pixa, l_int32 type, l_int32 nbins, l_int32 thresh )

  pixaGetAlignedStats()

      Input:  pixa (of identically sized, 8 bpp pix; not cmapped)
              type (L_MEAN_ABSVAL, L_MEDIAN_VAL, L_MODE_VAL, L_MODE_COUNT)
              nbins (of histogram for median and mode; ignored for mean)
              thresh (on histogram for mode val; ignored for all other types)
      Return: pix (with pixelwise aligned stats), or null on error.

  Notes:
      (1) Each pixel in the returned pix represents an average
          (or median, or mode) over the corresponding pixels in each
          pix in the pixa.
      (2) The @thresh parameter works with L_MODE_VAL only, and
          sets a minimum occupancy of the mode bin.
          If the occupancy of the mode bin is less than @thresh, the
          mode value is returned as 0.  To always return the actual
          mode value, set @thresh = 0.  See pixGetRowStats().
