This little addon is based on Google's own language detector in chrome.
It wraps this library http://code.google.com/p/chromium-compact-language-detector/
See the example.
Note that the binaries and headers linked in the Project.xcconfig.
To compile the library from the above source for your platform, you might try something like this:
./autogen.sh ./configure CFLAGS=-m32 CXXFLAGS=-m32 --enable-static=yes --prefix="<THE PATH TO>"/ofxLanguageDetector/libs/cld" make make install
For osx/linux (and maybe even windows), you may also need to add:
#define CLD_WINDOWS 1
to this file:
before or after you install so it doesn't pick up the windows references.
More discussion of that here:
