  • package require Tcl 8.5
  • package require crimp::sgi ?0.2?


This package provides commands for the conversion of SGI raster images into CRIMP images. Note that this package does not provide the ability to write images in the SGI raster format.

For a basic introduction of the whole CRIMP eco-system please read the CRIMP - Introduction to CRIMP (sic!). The basic concepts used here, like images, image types, etc. are described in the reference manpage for the CRIMP - Foundation. We will not repeat them here, but assume that the reader knows them already.

In the overall architecture this package resides in the middle layer of the system's architecture, between core and applications, as shown at


The commands it provides all fall into the I/O category of the general design.


::crimp read sgi string

This method extends the ::crimp read ensemble. It takes the (possibly binary) string holding an image in the SGI format and returns an image of type rgb containing it.
