Example

 
 
- img = ia.open(’hcn’)  
- rg.fromfiletorecord(T, "x1 x2", "file1, file2", r1, r2)  
- ia.statistics( region=r1, verbose=True )  
- ia.statistics( region=r2, verbose=True )  
 
 
In this example, we create two regions called  {\stf r1} and {\stf r2}  
from the files ???  
The regions are renamed to ‘x1’ and ‘x2’ as they are stored.  
 

Example

 
e  
- img = ia.open(’hcn’)  
- r1 = rg.box()f  
- r2 = rg.quarter()  
- rg.fromglobaltotable(img, T, F, "", r1, r2)  
- rg.namesintable(img)  
x1 x2  
 
 
In this example, we save two regions called {\stf r1} and {\stf r2} to  
the table (previously containing no regions) referred to by the image  
tool {\stf im}.  The names for regions are made up for us as we don’t  
specify them.  Note that because the regions are specified by the  
special \glish\ ‘...’ argument (it has no actual argument name), we  
must give the {\stfaf regionname} argument explcitly as an empty vector  
of strings (else \glish\ will take the empty string as a region).
