2.5. Networks

Networks are connections between modules with which you can implement complex processing tasks from sets of standard ML, Inventor, WEM, CSO, ITK, or VTK modules.

Networks are edited and saved as *.mlab files in MeVisLab.

In Figure 2.2, “Network Layout”, the internal network of the RegionGrowingMacro module is shown. It consists of all three types of modules and shows data connections as well as parameter connections.

Remember that macro modules are encapsulated networks of their own, so you effectively work with subnetworks (see Chapter 9, Introduction to Macro Modules for more information).


For information on the involved classes for the programming of modules, connectors, and connections, see Chapter 13, Introduction to C++ Modules.
