I am familiar with the CLAHE algorithm and have found it very useful. I am very pleased that it has been added to OpenCV. Is there any API documentation available other than the include files? Examples of use?

Example of use:

Mat m= imread("lena.png",IMREAD_GRAYSCALE); //input image
imshow("lena_GRAYSCALE",m);

Ptr<CLAHE> clahe = createCLAHE();
clahe->setClipLimit(4);

Mat dst;
clahe->apply(m,dst);
imshow("lena_CLAHE",dst);

waitKey();

clipLimit = 2

clipLimit = 4

How do you de-allocate clahe's memory after using it ? I saw collectGarbage() as one of the methods. Is that the right one ?

You can do it yourself ,this is my solution:

Mat claheGO(Mat src,int _step = 8)
{
    Mat CLAHE_GO = src.clone();
    int block = _step;//pblock
    int width = src.cols;
    int height= src.rows;
    int width_block = width/block; //每个小格子的长和宽
    int height_block = height/block;
    //存储各个直方图  
    int tmp2[8*8][256] ={0};
    float C2[8*8][256] = {0.0};
    //分块
    int total = width_block * height_block; 
    for (int i=0;i<block;i++)
    {
        for (int j=0;j<block;j++)
        {
            int start_x = i*width_block;
            int end_x = start_x + width_block;
            int start_y = j*height_block;
            int end_y = start_y + height_block;
            int num = i+block*j;  
            //遍历小块,计算直方图
            for(int ii = start_x ; ii < end_x ; ii++)  
            {  
                for(int jj = start_y ; jj < end_y ; jj++)  
                {  
                    int index =src.at<uchar>(jj,ii);
                    tmp2[num][index]++;  
                }  
            } 
            //裁剪和增加操作,也就是clahe中的cl部分
            //这里的参数 对应《Gem》上面 fCliplimit  = 4  , uiNrBins  = 255
            int average = width_block * height_block / 255;  
            //关于参数如何选择,需要进行讨论。不同的结果进行讨论
            //关于全局的时候,这里的这个cl如何算,需要进行讨论 
            int LIMIT = 40 * average;  
            int steal = 0;  
            for(int k = 0 ; k < 256 ; k++)  
            {  
                if(tmp2[num][k] > LIMIT){  
                    steal += tmp2[num][k] - LIMIT;  
                    tmp2[num][k] = LIMIT;  
                }  
            }  
            int bonus = steal/256;  
            //hand out the steals averagely  
            for(int k = 0 ; k < 256 ; k++)  
            {  
                tmp2[num][k] += bonus;  
            }  
            //计算累积分布直方图  
            for(int k = 0 ; k < 256 ; k++)  
            {  
                if( k == 0)  
                    C2[num][k] = 1.0f * tmp2[num][k] / total;  
                else  
                    C2[num][k] = C2[num][k-1] + 1.0f * tmp2[num][k] / total;  
            }  
        }
    }
    //计算变换后的像素值  
    //根据像素点的位置,选择不同的计算方法  
    for(int  i = 0 ; i < width; i++)  
    {  
        for(int j = 0 ; j < height; j++)
