What I did is the following:
1- I used the "blankPatt.gif" image and created a new pattern
labeled "patt_fadi.bmp" inside the folder /patterns/
2- I switched to the folder /bin/ and run mk_pattern.exe where I used
the file camera_para.dat (from /bin/data/) for camera caliberation
3- I exposed the camera to my newly created pattern "patt_fadi.bmp"
till I got the red corners upper left side.
4- Then, I right clicked on the window which asked me to enter a
filename where I specified "patt.fadi" as the file name for the bitmap
5- I cannot find "patt.fadi" anywhere, nor inside /bin/data/ (as
specified in the documentation) nor inside /bin/ nor inside /patterns/
Thank you for your help.
