Wavelet Image Compression Construction Kit

This code implements a wavelet transform-based image coder for grayscale images. The coder is not the most sophisticated--it's a simple transform coder--but each individual piece of the transform coder has been chosen for high performance. The coder is quite effective, despite its lack of more sophisticated features such as zerotrees. It yields performance comparable to Shapiro's EZW coder. It is designed to be a foundation upon which more more sophisticated coders can be built--there's no need to reinvent the wheel if you're working on only one aspect of the coding process.
