Description
This program will perform simple algebra on either one or two cubes.
The two cubes may be added, subtracted, multiplied or divided. The
following equations are used:
UNARY: out = (A * from1) + C
ADD: out = ((from1  D) * A) + ((from2  E) * B) + C
SUBTRACT: out = ((from1  D) * A)  ((from2  E) * B) + C
MULTIPLY: out = ((from1  D) * A) * ((from2  E) * B) + C
DIVIDE: out = ((from1  D) * A) / ((from2  E) * B) + C
The FROM2 cube must have either one band or the same number of bands as the
FROM cube. If the FROM2 cube has one band, then the algebraic formula will
be applied to all bands in FROM using that single band in FROM2. If FROM2
is a multiband cube, the algebra will be performed between corresponding
bands from FROM and FROM2.

FROM2
Description
This image will be used as the second term in the equation. This
cube must have either one band or the same number of bands as the
cube in FROM. If this cube has one band, then the single band will
be applied to each band in FROM using the equation. If this cube
has multibands then each corresponding band in FROM2 is applied to
FROM using the equation.

Original version

Tracie Sucharski  20020820 
Ported to Isis 3.0, combining add,mad,b16mad and mult.

Tracie Sucharski  20021029 
Was not handling special pixel values correctly. If only one input
file, output the input special pixel value. If two input files and
one of the input values is a special pixel value, output a NULL.

Tracie Sucharski  20021112 
Changed parameters MULT1,MULT2 and ADD to A,B and C respectively.

Tracie Sucharski  20030128 
Removed from Utility category.

Stuart Sides  20030516 
Modified schema location from astogeology... to isis.astrogeology..."

Stuart Sides  20030729 
Modified filename parameters to be cube parameters where necessary

Stuart Sides  20031023 
Fixed typo in algebra.xml which caused IsisGui to display names
and input fields incorrectly.

Jeff Anderson  20040217 
Fixed division by zero problem with DIV operator and bug with
single files by adding UNARY operator.

Jeff Anderson  20040217 
Fixed division by zero problem with DIV operator and bug with
single files by adding UNARY operator.

Drew Davidson  20050727 
Added the D and E coefficients

Kris Becker  20061214 
Modifed how special pixels are propagated to the output file.
Originally, all special pixel values and operations resulted in
Null being set to the output pixel. Now if the FROM pixel
is a special pixel, it is always propagated to the output file
unchanged without regard of the FROM2 pixel. If FROM is
not a special pixel and FROM2 is, the output pixel is set to
Null.

Stacy Alley  20070820 
Fixed segmenation fault error. If the user did not enter a FROM2 value then tried to perform a nonunary operation
the program would crash. FIX:The program will inform the user of the error without crashing so they can make the
proper correction.

Mackenzie Boyd  20110411 
Changed parameter FROM1 to be FROM

Steven Lambright  20120223 
Updated to use the new ProcessByLine API. This program now takes
advantage of multiple global processing threads.
