Dear All

In the opencv2.4.4 I can't find the file like opencv2manager.pdf, but there are a lot file with the format ".rst". Can any one please let me know how to view it effectively?

What is the beneficial of removing the pdf file and using these rst file?

Many thanks

The .rst files are text files in reStructuredText format, a document format for documentation, etc... These files are used to generate the HTML documentation as well as the PDF. I suppose in 2.4.4 final (it's still beta) it will be included in the released package.

Hi, I know this is a bit old but I was myself recently searching to parse the rst files to html to get the documentation offline. What you'll need to do is go to your build directory and run the command make html_docs. This uses sphinx to build the documentation (so make sure it is installed).
