Qt, C++, Old Mac to New Mac IP transfer
Unusual project for someone experienced with QT, C++ and MacOSX. You will need two Mac's: one older with a 32bit OS, and one new one with 10.8 or higher.
The project came about because we have a piece of hardware (a special camera) that only works on the old Mac. We want to have a setup where the camera is connected to the old Mac, and sends images to our program on the new Mac.
a) building a little program on the old Mac that sends the images, and receives parameters like the exposure time
b) building a program on the new mac that receives the images and can send parameters, like the exposure time.
I envision creating an IP connection between the two, probably using the Firewire connection.
That seems the fastest and cheapest way. We can then use the Qt example for interprocess communication (fortune cookie server) to already start doing a lot of what I described.
I am open to other suggestions. As you can see, it will be critical that you can test this out on a similar hardware set up. The camera of course can be simulated, don't worry about that, just read an image file to pretend it is a camera image. It has to be written in C++ using Qt 5.3 or up.
