## Java: PRISM: Octave to Java

The algorithm we used for my undergraduate research was prototyped in GNU Octave. As such, when we needed to integrate the algorithm into our final product, we had to translate the Octave functions we used to Java.

Note that this is *not* a port of all Octave functions to Java. This only includes the Octave functions we used in our project.
These functions include, but are not limited to, the following:

- rgb2gray, which differs significantly from that of Matlab's
- the various matrix/vector arithmetic operators, implemented as methods; and, possibly,
- some image-processing functions we used for our research project which shouldn't really be there but is there anyway, for what it's worth. Note that though these functions are not natively part of Octave, they can be built using native Octave functions.

The code is quite documented though how well and how accurate, I leave the user to find out, *caveat emptor*. It is not in my plans
to maintain this though maybe, just maybe, I'll document this better some time in the future.

Note that, I documented here our thesis in general. So if you are only after my documentation of porting Octave code to Java, you might encounter some
noise.
