func ClearPersistentCache Uses

func ClearPersistentCache()

ClearPersistentCache clears any library-level memory caches. There are a variety of expensive-to-load constant data structures (mostly language dictionaries) that are cached globally – surviving the Init() and End() of individual TessBaseAPI's. This function allows the clearing of these caches.

func GetAvailableLanguages Uses

func GetAvailableLanguages() ([]string, error)

func Version Uses

func Version() string

BoundingBox contains the position, confidence and UTF8 text of the recognized word

type Client Uses

type Client struct {

    // Trim specifies characters to trim, which would be trimed from result string.

    Trim bool

    // TessdataPrefix can indicate directory path to `tessdata`.
    // It is set `/usr/local/share/tessdata/` or something like that, as default.
    // TODO: Implement and test
    TessdataPrefix string

    // Languages are languages to be detected. If not specified, it's gonna be "eng".
    Languages []string

    // Variables is just a pool to evaluate "tesseract::TessBaseAPI->SetVariable" in delay.
    // TODO: Think if it should be public, or private property.
