OCRchie compilation notes
1) Specify the compiler you wish to use. We compiled
with g++ (C++ gcc) versions 2.7.0 and 2.6.3 for hpux 9.03, but
other compilers should work as well. We did recieve some
warnings about certain constructs forbidden by ANSI C++. Ignore
these warnings (or fix them if your compiler requires you to
2) Indicate any flags you wish to compile with in the CCFLAGS
3) Specify your Tcl root directory. The Tcl version should be
7.4 supporting Tk4.0. Later versions may work as well, but
tk syntax in earlier versions will not be compatible. (if you must,
the errors are mostly caused by scrollbars in the file "new_ui.tcl",
instead of using the -xscrollincrement option, use the -scrollincrement
option). The beta edition of 7.4 will give a nasty error after opening
files during OCRchie operations. Ignore this message.
4) Specify your X11 and Math library locations.
5) Change ODIR to the name of the directory in which you'd like
to store OCRchie object files. You must create this directory
before you compile.
6) Do "gmake project" from your prompt.
If you're using parts of this package separately, you
probably know how to mess around with Makefiles and the
like, the only thing I should probably warn you about
is that TCL IS REQUIRED for several of the modules. There
is a "link variable" (in "link.h" & cc) interface that allows
you to set global variables through tcl in the file "link_vars.tcl."
Setting global variables in tcl can be a great advantage,
since you do not need to compile after doing so. Also, most
files do need to be compiled with "system.cc".
