Hi Folks:

I just downloaded, built, and tested this OCR engine.

It is really pretty good, and it was very easy to build. At the moment it is a bit limited (requires TIFF format, 8 bit depth, and doesn't understand columns etc.) but the limitations don't seem to be in the engine, only in the bells and whistles.

As far as I understand it, part of the source is not actually open source, so it can't be packaged for distribution afaik.
The non-open-source part is no longer actually used, it's just dead code (according to docs). The "aspirin/MIGRAINE" directory is the one that contains this no-longer-used, non-free code, I am told.

So it can be stripped out and the result redistributed at will.
