i'll test it under linux/x86.
by the way, i am working on a python module to read data from VICAR
file formats of data sent from the Galileo mission to Jupiter. my work
is on the Jovian ring system.
So far i have a simple module which reads the label headers,
determines the image size, reads the data in from file and creates a
Numeric array from same, eventually to be shipped into PIL or Khoros
or something for visualization.
what i need to do next is work on determining radial and longitudinal
coordinates from spacecraft position and orientation, and ultimately
will build a module that will allow me to determine pixel brightness
along narrow rings of constant radius. the jovian ring has some
interesting radial brightness variations which i am musing on.
anyone else out there using VICAR/Python/PIL?
