Considering edges of connected components as ends, each end pixel is linked to another end pixels if the two pixels belong to different connected components, and if the distance between the two pixels is less than a threshold. This operation can be useful in the case of disconnected filamentous objects and it is used in Hardy et al., Advanced digital image analysis method dedicated to the characterization of the morphology of filamentous fungus, Journal of Microscopy, 2017. Please cite this paper if you use this plugin.

Update :
