Long time lurker, first time poster.

I want to write a script that takes an image as an input, and outputs 
the name of the shape contained in it.

 >> python image_proc.py square.jpg

 >> python image_proc.py circle.jpg

The long term goal is to move beyond recognizing basic shapes into 
recognizing more complex binary color symbols.

I have been looking into using Gamera, SciPy, and Pyro (so far Gamera 
looks the most promising).  Does anyone have insights in this field?
