<h2><a name="intro">Introduction: What is VXL?</a></h2>
VXL (the Vision-<i>something</i>-Libraries) is a collection of C++ libraries designed for computer
vision research and implementation. It was created from TargetJr and the
<a href="http://www.aai.com/AAI/IUE/IUE.html">IUE</a> with the aim of making a light, fast and
consistent system. VXL is written in ANSI/ISO C++ and is designed to be portable over many platforms.
The core libraries in VXL are:
<ul>
<li><b>vnl (numerics)</b>: Numerical containers and algorithms. e.g. matrices,
vectors, decompositions, optimisers.</li>
<li><b>vil (imaging)</b>: Loading, saving and manipulating images in many common file formats,
including very large images.</li>
<li><b>vgl (geometry)</b>: Geometry for points, curves and other elementary objects in 1, 2 or 3 dimensions.</li>
<li><b>vsl (streaming I/O), vbl (basic templates), vul (utilities)</b>:
Miscellaneous platform-independent functionality.</li>
</ul>
As well as the core libraries, there are libraries covering <b>numerical algorithms, image processing,
co-ordinate systems, camera geometry, stereo, video manipulation, structure recovery from
motion, probability modelling, GUI design, classification, robust estimation,
feature tracking, topology, structure manipulation, 3d imaging</b>, and much more.
<p>Each core library is lightweight, and can be used without reference to the
other core libraries. Similarly, the non-core libraries don't depend on more
than absolutely necessary, so you can compile and link just
the libraries you really need.</p>
<p>For a more detailed description of the libraries see
<a href="http://public.kitware.com/vxl/doc/release/books/core/book.html">the VXL book</a>.</p>
<p>VXL is developed and used by an <a href="developers.html">international
team</a> from academia and industry, including some of the world's leading
computer vision experts.</p>

<h2><a name="docs">Documentation</a></h2>
<h3>Documentation on the whole of VXL</h3>
There are two main references for information on the whole of VXL:
<ul>
<li>The VXL package documentation includes auto-generated descriptions
of every class and function in VXL.
<ul>
<li><a href="http://public.kitware.com/vxl/doc/release/index.html">Latest release</a>.
<li><a href="http://public.kitware.com/vxl/doc/development/index.html">Current development version (CVS snapshot)</a>.
</ul>
<li>The VXL book is a single reference for all high-level documentation on VXL.
<ul>
<li><a href="http://public.kitware.com/vxl/doc/release/books/core/book.html">Latest release</a>.
<li><a href="http://public.kitware.com/vxl/doc/development/books/core/book.html">Current development version (CVS snapshot)</a>.
</ul>
</ul>
<!--
The <a href="http://www.isbe.man.ac.uk/search_vxl.html">documentation search</a>
page is useful for quickly finding documentation.-->
You can also <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/vxl/">download</a> the
release 1.10.0 documentation.
<h3>VXL guides</h3>
These are short guides to specific areas in VXL:
<ul>
<li><b>xcv</b> is an application built to demonstrate the functionality of the VXL libraries.
<ul>
<li>There is a <a href="manuals/xcv/newxcv.html">guide to using xcv</a>
(also available <a href="manuals/xcv.ps.gz">in postscript format</a>).</li>
<li>Download <a href="manuals/xcv.zip">xcv for Windows</a>,
<a href="manuals/xcv-SunOS5.bin.gz">xcv for solaris</a>.
and <a href="manuals/xcv-linux.bin.gz">xcv for linux</a></li>
<li>Here is some <a href ="manuals/xcvdata.tar.gz">example data</a>
suitable for use with xcv.</li>
</ul>
<br/>
</li>
<li><b>vgui</b> is the VXL graphical user interface library.
<ul>
<li>For a simple introduction to using VGUI there is the
<a href="manuals/vgui_users_guide/index.html">VGUI users guide</a>
(also <a href="manuals/vgui_users_guide.ps.gz">in postscript format</a>).
Here is the <a href ="manuals/examples-tutorial.tar.gz">
example code</a> used in the guide.</li>
<li>The <a href="manuals/vgui_ref_manual/index.html">VGUI
reference manual</a> (also <a href="manuals/vgui_ref_manual.ps.gz">in
postscript format</a>) is designed for developers of VGUI.</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
xcv and vgui have not changed a lot since the last release of VXL so these guides should be useful for both
the release and development versions of VXL.
<ul>
<li>The <a href="http://public.kitware.com/vxl/doc/release/books/contrib/mul/book.html">MUL
book</a> is an overview of libraries concerned with probability modelling,
classification, and 3d and registered images.</li>
</ul>

<h2><a name="download">Download and install</a></h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://vxl.cvs.sourceforge.net/vxl/vxl/core/vxl_copyright.h?revision=HEAD">VXL License</a></li>
</ul>
You can download the latest official release vxl-1.10.0
<table>
<tr>
<td>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/vxl/">Download VXL-1.10.0</a></li>

<p>Or get the latest development version from the CVS repository at SourceForge.</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/cvs/cvs.html">CVS homepage</a>. If you are using a Windows platform
you may wish to use <a href="http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/">Cygwin</a> or
<a href="http://www.tortoisecvs.org/">TortoiseCVS</a> which provide a nice GUI for CVS.</li>
<li><a href="http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=24293">Download latest development version of VXL</a>.
(To download the whole of vxl use &quot;vxl&quot; for <i>modulename</i>.)</li>
