Byte type numbers

In the Huygens Software, byte type is one of the number representations used by the Huygens Compute Engine to describe VoXels intensities in an image. It is an unsigned 8 bit type. The valid range is therefore integers from 0 to 255.

The main merit of this data type is its modest memory requirement. It is mainly intended for use in image visualization.
