What is the algorithm used for "Equalize"?
Can somebody tell me what algorithm is used by Gimp for "Equalize"? I'm writing a program of my own, and it uses histogram equalization according to Wikipedia's article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histogram_equalization

The results of my program are visibly different from the results of Gimp. I turned off color management in Gimp, since my program doesn't use color management, so that I could compare the results more accurately. Unfortunately, the results still don't match. I hope someone here can explain just what Gimp is doing for the "Equalize" function. Anybody here in these forums have access to the Gimp source code?
