I want to build a linux application but since I have to use a DLL library, I read that I can write the program in win32 VC++ / .NET and compile it with mono.
My application does Handwriting recognition and uses a DLL library compiled in Vcc /.NET.
I need a console app that takes an argument (Base64 encoded DIB image) and output the decoded string.
The DLL library is provided by a third party but they only have Visual C++ demo that capture the DIB image from the clipboard and return the decoded string.
I have attached a sample project files.
I have a webserver running on linux (running PHP), I need a handwriting recognition library to decode part of an image that is stamped with some handwriting character, so I looked all over the internet and only found 2 third party libraries but they are only available as DLL (not sure if they are .NET or win32 dlls) so I need to find a way to use these DLL on linux. if it can not not be done, then I would need a win32 webapp that will run as a window service and that will listen on port XXX. I will be sending an HTTP POST (a JSON string that will contain the Image in BMP format encoded in Base64, with the command like "RecognizeLine,RecognizeWord" see recoicr.c there are about 6) and then the webapp will decode the Image send the command to the dll and respond also in JSON format with the results.
