could you please include the sources of the face detector or at least explain your approach (details of FaceDetect.mexw32)?

I guess it is a wrapper of an openCV implementation of the Viola-Jones algorithm - whats is the difference between your implementation and e.g. this one <a href=""> here </a>? - Where are the C++ sources?


- oh - and the Flex-GUI has no "exit" or "close" functionality - it is possible to exit it by pressing Esc and cose the window, but when implementing a full screen GUI you should also provide a close functionality :-)

other than that - good work
