Here’s my slightly modified workflow:
svn checkout http://tesseract-ocr.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ tesseract-ocr cd tesseract-ocr ./autogen.sh mkdir build cd build ../configure make make install
recently a makefile changed, and I need to regenerate them, starting at the source code root:
autoreconf --force --install cd build ../configure make make install
Making a “build” directory, makes it easier to keep track of source code changes with svn. I set up my global ignores to ignore the interim files and directories.
then I uncommented this line and added everything after .DS_Store
global-ignores = *.o *.lo *.la *.al .libs *.so *.so.[0-9]* *.a *.pyc *.pyo *.rej *~ #*# .#* .*.swp .DS_Store *.in build config configure *.cache aclocal.m4 m4
So then I only see source code files that are added or modified when I check
