Hi Chris,

to the best of my knowledge there is no good pdf documentation on how to install and maintain GIFT. It is a research tool and often requires a bit of work to make it work. Looking at older articles of the Viper project will give you a good idea about the system:

It was developed on Linux and I know that at least some versions compiled on Mac. I am not aware of a windows version.

GIFT is best run on a machine with a web server as most user interfaces are web-based and images are addressed as URLs. Still, you could also build a stand-alone version without the use of a web server.

Kind regards, Henning

I'm attempting to learn more about the GNU CBIR software. Is there a pdf
document that you can reference that might help me? I would like to know
if the CBIR has an interface that can run on a window os. I'm currently
using win 7 I(64 bit) and I have downloaded the gift-0.1.15.tar.gz
<> version. I guess I
don't really understand if the GIFT is a "stand alone" product or if it
has to run on an Internet server of some kind?Is there something that I
need in order to install this in win 7? I guess what I am looking for is
more technical information about how to set up the GIFT CBIR. I would
also like to test this GNU software and see what kind of results it
comes up with.

Thank you for your help
