Facedetect is a simple face detector for batch processing. It answers
the basic question: "Is there a face in this image?" and gives back
either an exit code or the coordinates of each detected face in the
standard output.
The aim is to provide a basic command-line interface that's consistent
and easy to use with software such as ImageMagick, while progressively
improving the detection algorithm over time.
facedetect is used in software such as fgallery to improve the thumbnail
cutting region, so that faces are always centered.
