[gdal-dev] pixel/line mapping for two images.

Thank you very much very much Chris for clarifying things. Could you please let me know which file contains the anti-aliasing code?
I did the arithmetic to compute the overlap but somehow I keep getting non-smooth areas
(areas with very sharp boundaries). The spatial resolution of the source image is so high that the source pixel is never
shared between two pixels in the destination image (according to my arithmetic ). Is this suppose to be the case?
The anti-aliasing code will help me to check my arithmetic.
With best regards.
