Please post your input image, and tell us your version of Imagemagick and your OS.

Have you installed FFTW delegate?

Do you have AWK installed on your system?

Your image works fine for me with no errors. However, please note that curved text will not be straightened. Have you tried one of my examples? Does it fail? Try https://betanews.com/wp-content/uploads ... 7x1024.png

I can only think that your version of AWK behaves differently to mine, since that is the line you reference. I am testing on a Mac. If one of my test images fails for you, I can try including some debugging code and send you the special version. You can run it and then tell me what messages you get. Perhaps I can track it down.

Let me know. Email me to fmw at alink dot net

I suppose Fred's script calls "awk", not "gawk".

Good point, snibgo. I overlooked that. Thanks. Yes, my scripts use AWK not GAWK. I do not know how different they are. Though a Google search indicates that GAWK should be compatible with AWK. But I have no experience with GAWK.

The compatibility of AWK/GAWK is up to the point that

Code: Select all

~$ awk -V
GNU Awk 4.1.3, API: 1.1 (GNU MPFR 3.1.4, GNU MP 6.1.0)

It's the same output as from GAWK.
And I seem to be able to call awk:

Code: Select all

~$ awk
Usage: awk [POSIX or GNU style options] -f progfile [--] file ...
Usage: awk [POSIX or GNU style options] [--] 'program' file ...
Thank you all for the answers. I'll write to the email mentioned.
