let me answer those in order. I actually use GIFT to sort medical forms personally, and am also a developer on OpenEMR, so am quite interested in your ideas. :)

there is no forum, but there is this list, which is the proper place to contact people interested in the software. there are not many of us, and i have just recently taken over as maintainer of this software.

for a 'getting started' doc, i am still writing one, and it is based on Debian/Linux. I do not have access to windows machinery, nor do i want it. While i do not reject patches for windows compatibility, i have not received any, and am not going to be developing for that platform.

1: probably yes(can denotes ability), but will require use of the CYGWIN package, to get compilers and unix-like functionality out of windows. I can not really advise much, as GIFT has a lot of dependancies i do not know how to set up on a windows platform.

2: what you have is the program source. that source code needs compiled, into a working binary for your platform, which will likely require the CYGWIN rigamarole referenced above.

3: i am working on a technology demo, but have not had time to complete it. If you're interested in seeing a demonstration in a more timely manner than i can provide through the free software time i have to dedicate, that will require either putting it together yourself, some input of financial resources so that i can prioritize this over other paying work, or just wait patiently for me to get done with , and place a demo online.

Features extracted by gift are stored in a custom-to-gift FTS file format. gift includes an agregator, that turns these into a series of indexed databases, for performing 'find like image' queries.

I hope this helps. If you're interested in 'pushing from behind, i recomend either trying to compile it on windows with cygwin and posting your results here (for other developers), or aquiring a debian/linux based platform, which you can crib large sections of my directions for.

After Greetings and Respect Sir,

I want your help please about GIFT, as I am a new developer wanted to work on GIFT platform to develope a CBIR system using it for medical images.
My problem is that I can't find a forum for developers on GIFT to have the ability to gain inf. and knowledge from developers' questions on GIFT also I can't find a Getting started doc. to help me make my first steps on GIFT.
Another questions:
1. Can I work by GIFT platform on windows vista and set it up?
2. I download GIFT program from here  ""      ("gift-0.1.11.tar.gz"    and    "gift-0.1.11.tar.gz.sig") but when I extract the first file I couldn't find any setup icon...... so  can you please tell me the program source that I can set up GIFT program from??
3. Actually, I search about GIFT but I coudn't exactly determine its capabilities regards features extraction stage and if I can edite or work at this stage or it is like a black box in this stage??

Sorry for this long mail Sir
Thanks So much,

Aya Naguib
