               IPW -- Image Processing Workbench

             ERL-C Version 1.1 (95 interim release)

  This, the ERL-C version of IPW, is a merger of the original work done
by Jim Frew at UCSB, his subsequent work, and the work done at the EPA
Environmental Research Laboratory, Corvallis, Oregon.  

  The main differences are:

    o  This version is more portable than the original.  A configuration
       script makes installation easier.  The header files and some of the
       programs have been changed to support ANSI C if it is available.  To
       determine if it has been installed correctly, test procedures are

    o  The documentation has been heavily updated.  The on-line manual
       pages are now much more complete and describe the programs more
       accurately.  A Postscript formatted IPW User's Manual will be
       provided soon.

    o  Many (over 80) programs have been added.

    o  GNU Make is used instead of the ipwmake scripts.  This yields better
       functionality for the make files.

  The complete source, including on-line documentation and testing
procedures, is available in the file ipw-dist.tar.gz in this directory.
Some useful tools are located in the Support/ directory.  See the README
file in that directory for descriptions.

  For everything you need to get IPW running, get the files ipw-dist.tar.gz
and Support/make-3.74.tar.gz.  Don't forget to use the ftp command
'type binary' when downloading compressed (*.Z or *.gz) files.  Inside the IPW
distribution (ipw-dist.tar.gz), you will find a file called "INSTALL" that
gives detailed information on how to install both GNU Make and IPW in
your environment.

The primary distribution points for IPW are:
