Provides high-level access to webcams. https://github.com/cgo/hsimage
|Latest on Hackage:||0.2.0.0|
This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
The current state is that the library provides a monad for
grabbing images from a webcam under Linux. In the future, more functionality like
image processing functions and other input devices may be added.
Last time I checked, the v4l2 package was not on hackage,
but it can be retrieved from here:
For images, repa arrays are used. Therefore, all the repa goodness
can be used with the data. It should also be possible without too much hassle
to write a function which gets the data into a different type of array,
if that is necessary.
Getting an image with a v4l webcam works like this:
> import Graphics.Webcam.Linux
> main = runCam (grab >>= saveBmp "my_image.bmp") (Webcam 0)
