13:04 pdurbin hmm, wanted to convert a png to text with ocr on mac. `brew install gocr` worked but homebrew doesn't seem to have pngtopnm
13:04 pdurbin which on linux I used like this: pngtopnm foo.png | gocr -
13:05 pdurbin this was a one off thing so this worked fine: Free Online OCR - Convert JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, PDF, DjVu to Text - http://www.newocr.com
