Normalize Image pixel values of 0 to 255 into values of 0 to 1 in OpenCV

I found this code it to be useful in Normalizing an gray image with values 0 to 255 into values of 0 to 1.

I found the following in a blog mehrez.kristou.org. I'm not sure why the blog is down right now or has been deleted. Had to get the following from google search cache. Thought of sharing with everyone.

I think Matlab function im2double does the same. This is likely to be the equivalent of im2double in OpenCV.

We cannot directly normalize the image as it takes only 8 bit unsigned integers as values. So we convert the scale and normalize it to values from 0 to 1 (from 0 to 255).
