Converting Diagrams to SGF
(Sebastian:) For me, it's easier to study a game with a good reader, such as SmartGo, than by looking at numbers in diagrams. It is great how easy SGF files can be obtained from a single diagram. However, there exists no way yet to obtain a game that's spread over several diagrams. Therefore, I would like to see an easy way to convert sequences of diagrams into SGF files. Such a tool could consist of
- a continuity checker: Complains if a diagram can not be considered as a continuation (or in a later version, variation) of the previous diagram(s). This could also be invoked after editing diagrams.
- the actual conversion machine. It would include comments that are marked with a stone or a number such as W234 into the correct move.
(repp:) How about a program that can concatenate SGF files?
Maybe have a look at a script I wrote recently called image2sgf
It's a command line script written in Python to create an SGF file from an image.
 tderz: I have never tried it, please have a look at:
BiGo, BiGo OCR 0.1b claims to have a program for OCR-ing diagrams.
"BiGo OCR 0.1b
Program for scan and recognize Go diagrams and fast manual input (linear input) of Go games. "
"BiGo OCR (is) distributed as info-donationware. Program registration is free of charge"
