thickening_seq — Add the result of a hit-or-miss operation to a region (sequential).
thickening_seq is obsolete and is only provided for reasons of backward compatibility.
thickening_seq calculates the sequential thickening of the input regions with a structuring element from the Golay alphabet (GolayElement). To do so, thickening_seq calls the operator thickening_golay with all possible rotations of the structuring element Iterations times. The following structuring elements are available:
'l', 'm', 'd', 'c', 'e', 'i', 'f', 'f2', 'h', 'k'.
The Golay elements, together with all possible rotations, are described with the operator golay_elements. For all elements of the Golay alphabet, except for 'c', the foreground and background masks are exchanged in order to have an effect for them on the outer boundary of the region. The element 'c' can be used to generate the convex hull of the input region if enough iterations are performed.

Let F be the area of an input region. Then the runtime complexity for one region is:
thickening_seq returns 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if all parameters are correct. The behavior in case of empty or no input region can be set via:
no region: set_system('no_object_result',<RegionResult>)
empty region: set_system('empty_region_result',<RegionResult>)
Otherwise, an exception is raised.
