Some idea

Asked by Kuzemko Aleksandr on 2008-08-24

I have some idea, that I think, help recognise many files in one directory.
I propose make output file name as "image_file_name+extension"

As for me it`s better than to substitute default filename. but there is another question - it is possible (in engine, not in cli now) to recognize more than one page and use "add" flag in the output. As far as i could see this is supported even on rtf/html output and allows to make batch tasks. May be later i will try to patch cli to allow usage of more than one filename to recognize, or even to recognize multipage tiff/pdf/ps files (via ImageMagick).

This is basically an ok request. However what you want to accomplish is extremely easy to do with some shell scripting. This combined with a lack of time means that this feature is probably not going to appear very soon.
