Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding the caption, part of Code Clinic: C++.
- The image metaclass is where I grab…the metadata from the image and find the caption.…So starting up here with the constructor,…and you notice that the constructor takes a file name,…there is no default constructor for this class.…So I pass that file name into the open image factory…in Exiv2, and you notice that that Exiv2 uses exceptions…for error-reporting, so I've put all of the Exiv2 code…in this try-block, and really, this is all we actually…use Exiv2 for: to grab this metadata, put it in…my own data structures, and then from there…I work from my own data structure.…
And here you'll see that I'm going to take all that…metadata, and I'm going to put it in this map,…this STL map, which simply has a…string for its key and a string…for its value, and it's called _metadata.…And so, there in Exiv2 I get the image, I read the metadata,…it puts it in these three different data structures:…one for Exiv data, one for IPTC data, and one for XMP data.…I check if these are empty, and if…they are, I assign them a null pointer,…
Bill introduces challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in C++. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
