Introduction

 

MacLispix is an image processing program that runs on the Macintosh. It is free. It is written in Macintosh Common Lisp, hence its name. It does some of the same things that NIH Image, and some commercial programs do, however it is primarily a special purpose research tool for the Microanalysis Research Group at NIST. In spite of that, many of the tools incorporated into MacLispix have been useful for other researchers.

Getting Started -

MacLispix is controlled by the MLx menu and by buttons. Use the MLx -> buttons menu to make the button window.

Special purpose functions are added by loading Widgets using the MLx->Load Widget menu. Widges may add menu items, make a new menu, or make a new button window which is made using the More Buttons button.
