    stray '@' in program

    Dear all,

    am compling openCV 2.1.0 on my macbook with OS 10.4.11.
    I have the following compiling error:
    /Users/admin/src/OpenCV-2.1.0/src/highgui/ error: stray '@' in program

    Does any one know from where it comes?

    Thx for any help

    Bearing in mind it gives you the location of the file and a line number, have you thought about trying to open the file and seeing what is happening inside? If I were you, that would be my first move.

    What compiler? How do you compile it? Do you know if OpenCV 2.1 is Tiger-compatible?

    Look what I found in the README:

    Known problems:

    * On MacOSX 10.5 and earlier Cocoa and QTKit bindings do not compile and/or do not work, so it is recommended to pass WITH_CARBON=ON and WITH_QUICKTIME=ON to CMake.
    So either upgrade to 10.6 or pass the flags they mentioned.
    All the buzzt!
