The G'MIC core features are mainly defined in these three files :
  • The low-level image processing functionalities (e.g. code of G'MIC native commands) are defined in file CImg.h (which is actually the core file of the CImg project, a C++ template image processing library we also develop).
  • Most of the G'MIC custom commands (written as G'MIC scripts) are defined in file gmic_def.gmic. This file can be seen as a kind of standard library of the G'MIC script language.
  • Other G'MIC specific features (e.g. the code of the interpreter) are defined in file gmic.cpp.
G'MIC is an open-source product distributed under the CeCILL License (GPL-compatible).
