cvApproxPoly alternative for OOP C++ (CV2)

asked 2012-08-08 13:58:22 -0600

Hi, i tried migrating my OpenCV app to the C++ API because i got too much memory leak and i heard its well managed in C++ API ..

but now i try to found an alternative for the cvApproxPoly function, i tried approxPolyDP() but it has significantly different arguments usage ..

And i can't find cvContourPerimeter too ..

thanks for helping me !

approxPolyDP() is not an alternative function to cvApproxPoly(), it is the same function with different API. Much simpler API actually. All you need to provide is input contour, container for output contour, epsilon (same one you used in cvApproxPoly), and flag whether the contour is open or closed. You still can provide your contour as CvSeq but vector of points is much more convenient and safer from memory leaks. Read rest of details here.

Use arcLength to calculate perimeter.

It may not be clear from the post or the docs, but the C++ function accepts contours parameter as std::vector<std::vector<cv::Point>>.
