I need to include an executable in my package (in my case it’s
exiftool). I managed to get
BinDeps.jl to download it and extract it to a
src folder in my
deps folder. But it’s riddled with problems (doesn’t work in Windows, works in unix only if I wrap stuff in
try blocks). Here is my attempt. Could some good soul please take a look and show me how to accomplish this?
Ultimately, I’d like for users of my package to be able to call on
exiftool. I assume it’s just easier to download and extract the executable instead of installing it on their system.
Thanks in advance!
