## Find the perimeter of objects in binary images.

## A pixel is part of an object perimeter if its value is one and there
## is at least one zero-valued pixel in its neighborhood.
##
## By default the neighborhood of a pixel is 4 nearest pixels, but
## if @var{n} is set to 8 the 8 nearest pixels will be considered.
