## DESCRIPTION

**im_glds_matrix()**creates a 256 by 1 one channel spatial grey level difference matrix (sglds) of the box determined by the parameters (xp, yp; xs, ys) within the image pointed by the IMAGE descriptor im. The matrix is written onto the IMAGE descriptor m. The displacement vector is determined by (dx, dy). The user must ensure that there is enough border pixels around the box within im dictated by the displacement vector (dx,dy) or else the program fails. im should be one-band unsigned char.

All entries of the sgld matrix are double normalised to the number of pairs involved. This function is a direct implementation of the paper: Haralick R. M., Shanmugan K. and Dinstein I., 'Textural features for image classification', IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Vol. SMC-3, No 6, Nov. 1973, pp 610-621.

**im_glds_asm()**
calculates the angular second moment of the co-occurrence matrix held by m.
The result is returned into the location pointed by asmoment.

**im_glds_contrast()**
calculates the contrast of the sglds matrix held by m. The result is returned
into the location pointed by contrast.

**im_glds_entropy()**
calculates the entropy of the sglds matrix held by m. The result is returned
into the location pointed by entropy.

**im_glds_mean()**
calculates the mean of the sglds matrix held by m. The result is returned
into the location pointed by mean.

## RETURNED VALUES

All functions returns 0 on success and -1 on error.## SEEĀ ALSO
