Here is my code, I'm not sure why I only run into segmentation fault when perform


void Char_Reg( Mat& img, vector<string>& txt, vector<Rect>& loc)
Ptr<text::OCRTesseract> reg;
vector<Rect> a ;
vector<string> b ;
vector<float> c ;
string num;

for(int i=0; i<loc.size(); i++)
Mat plt=img(loc[i]);
adaptiveThreshold(plt,plt, 255, CV_ADAPTIVE_THRESH_GAUSSIAN_C, CV_THRESH_BINARY, 15, 5.5);
reg->run(plt, num,&a, &b, &c,5);

your reg object was never initialized. you're lacking code like:

Ptr<text::OCRTesseract> reg = text::OCRTesseract::create();

please see docs

(then, you probably should not allocate such an object per detection, but only once per runtime)

But by right it should use the default value if I not initialize it, doesn't it?

@berak thank you, I found my problem, yes you are right, I have to initialize it before i can use it, before that I'm using wrong syntax that's why I run into segmentation fault.
