There are no formal plans that I am aware of for implementing a garp
service with an OGSI interface. Ricardo?

It's probably not that big of a deal- I was thinking of just taking the
SWIG'd python interface and using that within ptolemy- but that would
probably not be an adequate solution since you would either need to add
a bunch of parameters (or a couple of classes containing the parameters)
to the method calls to ensure that the state of the algorithm is
preserved between calls. It may be as simple as setting the necessary
parameters before calling a particular method. For example, I've
attached a simple test script that does a garp prediction using the
python interface. Breaking this into chunks (presample, initialize,
iterate, then various extractions) that can operate independently
requires that the state of oGarp is recreated before calling the method
Just wrapping the whole thing as a method would of course make things a
whole bunch easier - then the only parameters needed to call it would be
the names of various input and output files.
