DESCRIPTION

im_lrmerge() and im_tbmerge() merge the images held by the image descriptors
reference and secondary (ref and sec) according to the values dx and dy. dx
and dy give the displacement of sec relative to ref. The result is written on
the image descriptor out. The program carries out a smooth merge using a
raised cosine function. Both work for any image type, including LABPACK.

The functions treat pixels with the value zero as "transparent", that is,
zero pixels in the overlap area do not contribute to the merge. This makes it
possible to join non-rectangular images.

The "mwidth" parameter limits the maximum width (or height) of the blend area.
A value of "-1" means "unlimited". All other negative values are errors.

RETURN VALUE

Both functions return 0 on success and -1 on error.
