[fprint] 1-n matching?

Hi Jimmy,

fprint can indeed do this, I am myself using it for this task. I am not near the source code nor a regular computer, however you can load the prints into a zero terminated array and give it to a function (fprint_verify or something in that direction) whose output, in case of a correct match, will be the index into the array for the matched print.

Sorry for the formatting, writing this from my phone...

I am writing an application that will need to read a fingerprint and then compare this to a series of previously scanned images and report back which file matched.

The matched file then corresponds to a given user and I can proceed from there.

I have googled high and low, and it seems like libfprint is not suited for this purpose - Am I right? :-)

If not, which programs do I need (or which parameters to frpintd-verify)?


ps, thanks for the help with installation - It was indeed the Debian version on APT that was too old and a hand.compiled version worked out of the box.
