I found my old development snapshot in time machine. Apparently, I wrote a little build script in bash and put it in the scantailor-advanced-1.0.16 folder.
cmake -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-std=c++11 -stdlib=libc++" -H. -Bbuild
I typed the following commands
chmod +x build.sh
sudo make install
All of this relies on fink for the support libraries. (Boost, Qt-5, tiff, zlib,png,jpeg9). Other package managers will install their libraries/include files elsewhere; the build script will need to be updated to reflect that.
Right now, the program can be invoked from the command line.
Technically there should be a way to package it up like a regular Mac app, but I’m too lazy to read the Qt5 docs.
I don’t have a mac development signing key, so. I’m not going to be able to distribute a binary.
And, yes, it does use all my cores.
