Calling Sequence


    Result = $
      FILL_REGION( boundary, $
                    point, $
                    sizeLimit, $
                    STATUS=status )

Return Value


    This function will return an array of byte data type with
    the same dimensions as the provided input image that contains
    a filled boundary region.

Inputs


    boundary
      A binary image containing a cluster of pixels for
      which the mean coordinate (centroid) is to be
      computed.
    point
      A 2-element vector defining a point located within the
      provided boundary from which region growth should begin.
    sizeLimit
      The maximum number of pixels that the region should be
        allowed to grow to (to prevent runaways -OR- to limit
        region size).

Keyword Parameters


    STATUS=status
      A returned boolean variable indicating if the number of
      pixels in the grown region has exceeded the limit specified.
