       input=name [required]
           Name of input raster map

       config=name [required]
           Configuration file

       path=name [required]

           Name for output raster map

DESCRIPTION (contrast weighted edge density) calculates the edge density between patch types


           ·   k: attribute

           ·   m: number of non-null attributes in the sampling area

           ·   eik: total length of edge in landscape between patch types i and k

                dik: dissimilarity (edge contrast weight) between patch types i and k

           ·   Area: total landscape area
       The  input  file  contains a row for each couple of patch type that we want to consider in
       the calculation. Each row must be saved using this syntax:


       Do not use absolute path names for the config and  output  file/map  parameters.   If  the
       "moving  window"  method  was selected in g.gui.rlisetup, then the output will be a raster
       map,    otherwise    an    ASCII    file    will    be    generated    in    the    folder
       C:\Users\userxy\AppData\Roaming\GRASS7\\output\             (MS-Windows)            or
       $HOME/.grass7/ (GNU/Linux).

       If the sample area contains only NULL values it is considered to have 0 patch and  CWED=0.
       If Area is 0 returns -1.  This is only possible if the map is masked.
       If you want to change these -1 values to NULL, run subsequently on the resulting map:
       r.null setnull=-1 input=my_map
       after index calculation.


       To  calculate  the  contrast  weighted  edge  density  index  on map my_map, using my_conf
       configuration file (previously defined with g.gui.rlisetup) and saving results in  my_out,
       run: input=my_map conf=my_conf output=my_out \
       Example for input "weights.csv" file:
