When the Hough transform is applied to the detection
of straight lines in images, it provides only the param
eters of the line but not the length or the end points of
the line. We propose a new algorithm for the determi
nation of the length and the end points of a line in an
image. It is very efficient in terms of computing time
and does not depend on the sharpness of the peak in
the accumulator array.
Detection of patterns in images is an important op
