IDL Wavelet Toolkit Architecture
The Toolkit consists of the following components:
- Source (
.pro) files in the
bitmaps subdirectory with button bitmaps;
data subdirectory with sample data files;
- The Online help manual in the IDL
- The DLM (Dynamically Loadable Module) in the IDL
You are encouraged to view the source files for details on implementation and technique. You are also welcome to modify the source files, however, it is strongly encouraged that you copy the files to your own directory first. By modifying the IDL !PATH variable you can ensure that your routines are compiled first. See !PATH for more information.
The IDL Wavelet Toolkit consists of three layers. The topmost layer is the Wavelet Applet, which allows you to import data and wavelet functions, and access various visualization and tool routines. The middle layer is the set of compound widgets and widget tools for visualization and analysis. These tools are accessible both from the Wavelet Applet and from your own routines. The lowest layer are the wavelet API (application programming interface) that consist of the wavelet functions, the wavelet transform, and the import data routine.
