As already mentioned before, the idea behind the development of the Mimotera++ API is to make every Mimotera
user able to read and decode the pixel information saved into the file. Given this, there are two main scenarios we can imagine to deal with.
- Extending the Mimotera++ with some more C/C++ code. In this case what you have to do is to use the Mimotera++ package as an SDK and directly call the MimoteraReader / MimoteraWriter from your code.
- Using a completely different framework for the analysis. This is for example the case if you want to continue the analysis using Mathlab. If your analysis framework allows to load external libraries as plugin, then you just have to point to libMimotera++. If this is not possible, either you use the convert2ASCII to read and convert a Mimotera binary file in something also human being can read, or you develop following the skeleton of convert2ASCII your onw converter writing the output in the format your analysis software like most. See the example section of this documentation for a verbatim of convert2ASCII if you don't have the source file.
In conclusion, the best way of understanding how libMimotera++ is working is starting with the examples and try to write your own converter, if you needed it.
