I am using tesseract to OCR some text in images, e.g this one:
I have this version of tesseract on my Ubuntu 20.04:
$ tesseract --version tesseract 4.1.1 leptonica-1.79.0 libgif 5.1.4 : libjpeg 8d (libjpeg-turbo 2.0.3) : libpng 1.6.37 : libtiff 4.1.0 : zlib 1.2.11 : libwebp 0.6.1 : libopenjp2 2.3.1 Found AVX2 Found AVX Found FMA Found SSE Found libarchive 3.4.0 zlib/1.2.11 liblzma/5.2.4 bz2lib/1.0.8 liblz4/1.9.2 libzstd/1.4.4
Invoking it as follows:
tesseract example.png output txt
However, when I open the
output.txt file in vim, I see
^L at the last line as follows:
What is the meaning of that character? Why it is appended at the last line? Is it possible to get rid of it?
I have looked in the man page of
tesseract, but I can't find anything about that.
