PS_package is a Windows interface to a C++ implementation of PSS, an algorithm for the segmentation of line drawings.
PSS requires line drawing images in Run Length Encoded format, as described later.
PSS breaks down drawings into particular structures named Primitive Structures (PS).

PS_package contains:
- PSS.exe, the executable code of the PSS implementation;
- *.txt, the library of the sample drawings provided with the package;
- readme, the PostScript file of PS_package User's Guide.

Requirements: Windows 95 on PC.

Installing PS package
To install the distribution package is necessary to download PS_package (zipped file 81,6 KB). The whole content must be stored into a directory named PS_package

Warning: PS-package is free for evaluation, research and educational purposes, but not for commercial purposes. Please acknowledge
