compare_obj — Compare iconic objects regarding equality.
The operator compare_obj compares iconic objects regarding equality. The iconic objects are passed in the two input parameters Objects1 and Objects2 in form of (possibly mixed) tuples of images, regions, or XLDs. The n-th object in Objects1 is compared to the n-th object in Objects2 (for all n). If the two passed object tuples have the same length and if all objects are equal, the parameter IsEqual is set to 1, otherwise to 0.
Depending on the type of the input objects, different conditions must be met for the equality of two objects. In the following, the conditions for each possible iconic object are listed:
For all channels, the gray values of the respective pixels must not differ by more than Epsilon. Note that images are only compared within their domain (ROI) and they are only equal if they have the same domain (ROI).
The regions must be equal. The parameter Epsilon has no effect for the comparison of regions.
XLD contours must have the same number of points and attributes. The point coordinates and the attribute values must not differ by more than Epsilon.
XLD polygons must have the same number of line segments. The length and the orientation of these segments as well as the coordinates of the control points must not differ by more than Epsilon.
XLD parallels must have an identical index of the start and end line segment of the parallels of the first polygon (P1) and the second polygon (P2) as well as identical pointers to the underlying contours.
For modified XLD parallels, the same conditions apply as for XLD parallels and extended XLD parallels. Furthermore, the distances between the line segements of the parallel polygons must be identical.
Note that compare_obj compares all objects regarding their actual content. In contrast test_equal_obj compares only regions regarding their actual content while for all other objects their location in memory is compared.
Maximum allowed difference between two gray values or coordinates etc.
Default value: 0.0
List of values: 0.0, 1.e-5
Boolean result value.
The operator compare_obj returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if the parameters are correct. The behavior in case of empty input (no input objects available) is set via the operator set_system(::'no_object_result',<Result>:). If the number of objects differs an exception is raised.
