Hi,
   I am intending to write a simple OCR engine. How should I go about doing it? Are there any source codes available for me to use and alter it according to my need? I am a newbie to this OCR thingy. Pls help.

    Unfortunately OCR engines are extremely expensive (for quality results).  Here are some open source alternatives.
