Imatest IT contains two different types of libraries IT/DLL and IT/EXE. Both libraries, described below, have the same functionality as the corresponding modules in Imatest Master, but they operate without user intervention, making them suitable for integration with automated systems. The Imatest IT License includes one year of Support.
Although IT/DLL and IT/EXE operate independently of Imatest Master, it is strongly recommended that IT users have at least one Master installation on site to support the process of defining execution parameters and default settings.
IT/DLL - Dynamic Link Library
Imatest IT/DLLis a software library designed for integration with other software systems. Imatest IT/DLL allows developers to access Imatest’s powerful analysis tools via calls to Imatest functions residing in a Dynamic Link Library (DLL).
Imatest IT/DLL is a complete package featuring not only the module libraries, but also extensive support documentation including detailed function definitions and sample code, as well as basic example programs that interface with modules.
IT/EXE - Executable Library
Imatest IT/EXE is a set of standalone programs initiated by DOS calls from the test system. The test system interacts with the IT programs through files specified in the DOS command line: the primary inputs are an image file and an INI control file (created and saved by Imatest Master during setup). The output is data files in XML or CSV format. Figures can be saved if desired.
