and libcurl. On Ubuntu 18.04
, those package can be installed using the following command:
sudo apt-get install libopencv-dev libmicrohttpd-dev
If you are using another distribution or operating system, you may have to compile them yourself.

On Ubuntu, they can be installed using the following command:
sudo apt-get install cmake git
To compile Pastec, first get the sources with the following command:
git clone https://github.com/Visu4link/pastec.git
