    I see that static libraries are being created during the tesseract build
    process, but unfortunately there aren't any shared libraries.  I have
    another project where python bindings to tesseract would be quite
    useful, but before I can create these bindings I need to have access to
    tesseract's ocr abilities through a shared library...

    Before starting in on this project, I wanted to see if this has worked
    at all in tesseract's past?  Also, is there anything I should watch out
    for?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

      In windows, I have tesseract running as a DLL. It was not that hard. The problem was with the API versus file output.

      A new simple API is coming from what I understand.

      Hi JetSoftDev, can you tell me what are the changes need to be made to tesseract to run as a dll?. Or better yet, can you send me the modified tesseract code to compile as a dll?.

      Thanks in advance.

      I'm in the same boat as the original poster - I'd like to use Tesseract from Python.  Help! :)

      Here is the dll for tess. We hope to get the code for it in the next version of tess:
