Good day guys! Im new to OpenCV, and yes, i'm still learning, but due to internet access constraints, i would like to know where i can find an OFFLINE API(just like the Java API reference) reference both for OpenCV C++ and OpenCV Java so that i can continue to learn it even without internet access. thanks.

You could compile the documentation from master. With sphinx, you are able to get offline exactly the same behavior as from the doc website, but also PDF, etc. Activate the "BUILD_DOC" option of CMake and type "make docs" to compile it.

I don't mean to be an ignorant individual but, could give me a step by step instruction on how to do this? from what i heard sphinx is some kind of Python tool...

If you are under Linux, and sphinx is installed, simply type "make html_docs" in the OpenCV build directory. You will find the result in doc/_htm/, launch index.html. That's it!

I almost died trying to do it, i would like to ask if somehow you already have the html documentation, i'd like to ask a .rar copy from you. that's if it isn't that much to ask for...
