Development files for the OpenSlide library

OpenSlide is a C library that provides a simple interface to read whole-slide images also known as virtual slides. . Whole-slide images, also known as virtual slides, are large, high resolution images used in digital pathology. Reading these images using standard image tools or libraries is a challenge because these tools are typically designed for images that can comfortably be uncompressed into RAM or a swap file. Whole-slide images routinely exceed RAM sizes, often occupying tens of gigabytes when uncompressed. Additionally, whole-slide images are typically multi-resolution, and only a small amount of image data might be needed at a particular resolution. . This library currently supports: - Aperio (.svs, .tif) - Hamamatsu (.vms, .vmu, .ndpi) - Leica (.scn) - MIRAX (.mrxs) - Sakura (.svslide) - Trestle (.tif) - Generic tiled TIFF (.tif) . This package contains development files needed to build OpenSlide applications.
