#define DEVERNAY_VERSION "1.0 (October 10, 2017)"

/* chained, sub-pixel edge detector. based on a modified Canny non-maximal
   suppression and a modified Devernay sub-pixel correction.


     image        : the input image
     X,Y          : the size of the input image
     sigma        : standard deviation sigma for the Gaussian filtering
                    (if sigma=0 no filtering is performed)
     th_h         : high gradient threshold in Canny's hysteresis
     th_l         : low gradient threshold in Canny's hysteresis


     x,y          : lists of sub-pixel coordinates of edge points
     curve_limits : the limits of each curve in lists x and y
     N            : number of edge points
     M            : number of curves

   the input is a XxY graylevel image given as a pointer to an array of doubles
   such that image[x+y*X] is the value at coordinates x,y
   (for 0 <= x < X and 0 <= y < Y).

   the output are the chained edge points given as 3 allocated lists: x, y and
   curve_limits. also the numbers N (size of lists x and y) and M (number of

   x[i] and y[i] (0<=i<N) store the sub-pixel coordinates of the edge points.
   curve_limits[j] (0<=j<=M) stores the limits of each chain in lists x and y.


     curve number k (0<=k<M) consists of the edge points x[i],y[i]
     for i determined by curve_limits[k] <= i < curve_limits[k+1].

     curve k is closed if x[curve_limits[k]] == x[curve_limits[k+1] - 1] and
                          y[curve_limits[k]] == y[curve_limits[k+1] - 1].
void devernay( double ** x, double ** y, int * N, int ** curve_limits, int * M,
               double * image, int X, int Y,
               double sigma, double th_h, double th_l );
