In version 4 we have the new functions Import, Export.
These functions are like Swiss Army knives, and I am
having a hard time understanding many of features within
them. Maybe I am just inexperienced, but here are some
of the features I don't understand:
When would one want to use Hierarchical Data Format,
MAT matrix format, PNG format, portable graymap format,
portable pixmap format, portable anymap format,
Mathematica system-independent raster graphics format ?
Look at al the flavors of PostScript available:
Mathematica abbreviated PostScript
Encapsulated PostScript with device independent preview
Encapsulated PostScript with TIFF preview
PostScript image format
When would one want to use each type of PostScript ?
When would I want to use the various sound formats ?
nu law encoding (.au)
sound file format
The Help Browser says "In some formats, lists of frames for
animated graphics can be given". It clearly says this can be
done for with GIF format. In what other formats can we export
The WRI web page demonstrates some image processing
that can be done by using the new ListConvolve and ListCorrelate
functions. I get the impression there is a whole world of possibilities
besides what they demonstrate. However, I wouldn't have a clue how
to do any of it. I think there is a need for a book that covers digital
image processing with Mathematica.
Perhaps someone will come out with a book that covers the new
capabilities with graphics in Mathematica.
