I have a soure code here of a project by I compiled with no problem and I added my name by typing "nMax" into the consoel but the problem comes now. Everyone it sees will be recognized as Max and when I added my friend, the program recognized my friend as Max. I have not fully understood the entire code so I hope you can help. Thanks.

The source code is here:

Thank you!

Hello. I am using Ubuntu here and I am running the Facial Recognition with Video. I have complied my code. When I tried running the program using the following code

./facerec_video /home/parallels/OpenCV-2.4.1/data/haarcascades/haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml /home/parallels/Desktop/myCSV.txt 0

It doesn't work. It says ./facerec_video not found! How do I solve this?

Thanks, then what IDE do you use? Do you recommend Eclipse? So you are saying that I don't need to relearn C++ again right?

2013-04-13 01:43:12 -0500 asked a question OpenCV C verses Python difference

Hello, I am a Objective-C developer and recently, I have a need of using OpenCV for Facial Recognition (not just detection). I had to switch to Ubuntu Linux, a environment which I am not so familiar with and I am very new to OpenCV. I saw that there is a class called faceRecognizer which can recognize faces right? Since I have not officially learned C++ or Python before, I have two different languages in front of me that I need to choose. My questions are:

1) Is the faceRecognizer class only for C++ or is it available with Python or even Java?

2) If only given 1 week of learning time, would learning C++ or Python be more fast to get to the facial recognition stage of my project (my project is just to recognise faces of a certain person). I have programmed in Objective-C, Actionscript, Processing before and I really need recommendations from you all who have had more experience than I do?

3) What IDE would you all recommend to develop for C++ or Java?

4) Can I write my code in Windows first then import it to Ubuntu Linux?

Thank you all! I have spent more that 24 hours of researching and can't come up with any idea how this works! -- Max
