Detailed Description

template<class T>
class aims::FileFormatDictionary< T >

Formats holder for each format of Aims object, used by Reader and Writer.

FileFormatDictionary is a plug-in mechanism to allow new formats to be registered. It uses at lower level specific IO classes for each format (JpegFormat for JPEG, which in turn use JpegReader and JpegWriter, AimsVidaReader for Vida, AimsSpmReader for SPM, etc., and IO classes for other object types (meshes, buckets, textures, ...))

Adding new IO formats

The standard Aims library includes a set of already compiled Readers and writers, for the following types:

  • AimsData<int8_t>
  • AimsData<uint8_t>
  • AimsData<int16_t>
  • AimsData<uint16_t>
  • AimsData<int32_t>
  • AimsData<uint32_t>
  • AimsData<float>
  • AimsData<double>
  • AimsData<cfloat>
  • AimsData<cdouble>
  • AimsData<AimsRGB>
  • AimsData<AimsRGBA>
  • AimsData<Point3df>
  • AimsSurfaceTriangle
  • Texture1d
  • Texture2d
  • AimsBucket<Void>

If you need to use other types, you'll have to include aims/io/reader_d.h and / or aims/io/writer_d.h in order to have the template functions definitions, aims/io/reader.h and aims/io/writer.h are only the class declarations. In addition, you may want to specialize the registerBaseFormats() functions of specific FileFormatDictionary specializations.

builds base formats maps.

Currently:

  • Volume formats:
    • SPM
    • VIDA
    • DICOM
    • ECAT
  • Mesh formats:
    • MESH
    • TRI
  • Texture formats:
    • TEX
  • Bucket formats:
    • BCK The formats list is dynamically extensible, you can register your own whenever you want to
