10.6: How to use OCR with HP multi-function printers
Authored by: tcsdoc on Feb 18, '10 09:39:36AM

As you can tell, I'm not a Terminal guy. Did not make it past the make command. What do I need to install to make this work?

iMac:tesseract-2.04 tcsdoc$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-apple-darwin10.2.0
checking host system type... i686-apple-darwin10.2.0
checking for cl.exe... no
checking for g++... no
checking for C++ compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
iMac:tesseract-2.04 tcsdoc$ make
-bash: make: command not found

Install XCode Tools

You have to install the XCode tools (available for free from apple).
They include the Gnu C compiler (gcc/g++) and gmake, which are both required to build software from source.

Thanks for pointing that out. I'd installed XCode long ago so had no idea this wasn't part of the standard OS X configuration.
