The skeleton(thinning) algorithm is very practical in image processing field .

My question : Why there is not this algorithm(function) in the OpenCV library?Is there a paricular reason?

Note : There are not also many other algorithm such as gabor wavelet,signular point(endpoint-bifurcation) extraction in skeleton etc .

This will not answer your question, but you might want to check some thinning implementations on my blog.

Set of functions that I mentioned is related to the field of fingerprint.There are not some basic functions in opencv library.

OpenCV is open source project, so you can contribute any useful functionality to the project. There is repository mirror on github. You can fork it, make some changes and propose pull request to the main repository. See more information about pull requests in Github help.
