In 1962 Hough earned the patent for a method [1], popularly called Hough Transform (HT) that efficiently identifies lines in images. It is an important tool even after the golden jubilee year of existence, as evidenced by more than 2500 research papers dealing with its variants, generalizations, properties and applications in diverse fields. The current paper is a survey of HT and its variants, their limitations and the modifications made to overcome them, the implementation issues in software
