#2211: Can not create image of Regular type

Comment(by anonymous):

 Replying to [comment:1 john.femiani_at_[hidden]]:

> 1. A regular type (like a single-chennel pixel) can be considered
 planer or interleaved. When the image type is planar, GIL tends to use the
 `num_channels` metafunction (valid only for !PixelBased), so it is easier
 just to say Regular types are '''not''' planar.

 In order to make this clear, I suggest the following additional patch, to
 be applied after the first:


 Index: image.hpp
 --- image.hpp (revision 48190)
 +++ image.hpp (working copy)
 @@ -48,6 +48,8 @@

 -template <typename Pixel, bool IsPlanar, typename
 Alloc=std::allocator<unsigned char> >
 +template <typename Pixel,
 + bool IsPlanar=false,
 + typename Alloc=std::allocator<unsigned char> >
  class image {
      typedef typename Alloc::template rebind<unsigned char>::other


 This provides a default value for the !IsPlanar template argument, so it
 can b left out if the image is a single channel pixel, so it does not
 create semantic 'noise'.

 For example:


  gil::image<int> the_img(100,100);
  gil::image<int>::view_t the_view = view(img);
  //NOTE: Why arent views constructible from images?
