Table Of Contents


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


This package provides commands for the conversion of Sun raster images into CRIMP images. Note that this package does not provide the ability to write images in the SUN 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 sun string

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