Short Descriptions

4channels

generates four TIFF files from RAW data, one file per channel.

dcraw_half

emulates "dcraw -h" (see DCRAW manpage).

mem_image

emulates "dcraw [-4] [-6] [-e]" (see DCRAW manpage).

postprocessing_benchmark

creates eight different renderings from one source file. The first and fourth one should be identical.

simple_dcraw

emulates call to "dcraw [-D] [-T] [-v] [-e] [-4]" (see DCRAW manpage).

dcraw_emu

is an almost complete dcraw emulator (see DCRAW manpage).

half_mt

emulates call to "dcraw -h [-w] [-a] [-v]" (see DCRAW manpage).

multirender_test

creates eight different renderings from one source file. The first and fourth one should be identical.

raw-identify

emulates call to "dcraw -i [-v]" (see DCRAW manpage).

unprocessed_raw

generates unprocessed raw image: with masked pixels and without black subtraction.
