    Is there any documentation for Tesseract? I haven't found anything aside from the usage message:

    ./tesseract imagename outputbase [configfile [[+|-]varfile]...]

    What are 'configfile' and 'varfile' here?

    What are the options that can be tuned?

    More specifically, I'd like to know if there is a way to restrict the set of characters that Tesseract is looking for (like the -C option of gocr). I need to convert a set of floating point numbers, so only the characters ".0123456789" are needed.

      My first stab at it. Not in a way of a "user's manual" but more for the hackers.

      Untar tess_docs01.tar.gz (a bit over 63MB
      decompressed!) somewhere handy and point your favorite
      browser to html-102/index.html - you should get two
      frames with a lot of nifty relationships. Enjoy!

      To download (since sf won't let me upload it):
      1) http://www.repairfaq.org/cgi-bin/United_R.cgi
      2) Near the bottom, click on the button that says "list
      of all files available
      3) Scroll down until you see "Doxyfied Tessearct-1.02
      documentation" and click on DOWNLOAD
      4) Enter the magic number
      5) Be sure to download it from the RFO mirror!
      (Sorry, this IS a pain but keeps our BW under
      80GB/month :-)

      V 0.03 will be out by end of this week. It will have theory of operation, some stack-traces for common procedures, MUCH better data structure definitions, and a glossary. Where possible, I reference other GNU ocr programs. I will also try to put the sources up on my server so it will be available on-line (or at least parts of it, I don't think we need a copy of the sources, that's way too big).

      Cheers,
      Fil
