The structure of OpenCV

Once OpenCV is installed, the OPENCV_BUILD\install directory will be populated with three types of files:

  • Header files: These are located in the OPENCV_BUILD\install\include subdirectory and are used to develop new projects with OpenCV.
  • Library binaries: These are static or dynamic libraries (depending on the option selected with CMake) with the functionality of each of the OpenCV modules. They are located in the bin subdirectory (for example, x64\mingw\bin when the GNU compiler is used).
  • Sample binaries: These are executables with examples that use the libraries. The sources for these samples can be found in the source package (for example, OPENCV_SRC\sources\samples).

OpenCV has a modular structure, which means that the package ...
