Grayscale colormap for contrast enhancement


cmap = contrast(X)
cmap = contrast(X,m)


The contrast function enhances the contrast of an image. It creates a new gray colormap, cmap, that has an approximately equal intensity distribution. All three elements in each row are identical.

cmap = contrast(X) returns a gray colormap that is the same length as the current colormap. If there are NaN or Inf elements in X the length of the colormap increases.

cmap = contrast(X,m) returns an m-by-3 gray colormap.
