ModeModeModeModemodemode is used by the operator disp_imagedisp_imageDispImageDispImageDispImagedisp_image. get_paintget_paintGetPaintGetPaintGetPaintget_paint is used for temporary changes of the gray value display mode. The current value is queried, then changed (with the operator set_paintset_paintSetPaintSetPaintSetPaintset_paint) and finally the old value is written back. The available modes can be viewed with the operator query_paintquery_paintQueryPaintQueryPaintQueryPaintquery_paint. ModeModeModeModemodemode is the name of the display mode.
