I want to compare different detectors/descriptors (both binaries and not) for my application and I want to use the Mikolajczyk evaluation framework, which is became a standard in the community about this kind of evaluation.

The region input format must be of the form:

%descriptor_size  
%nbr_of_regions
%x1 y1 a1 b1 c1 d1 d2 d3 ...
%x2 y2 a2 b2 c2 d1 d2 d3 ...
%....
%....
%---------------------
%x, y - center coordinates
%a, b, c - ellipse parameters ax^2+2bxy+cy^2=1
%d1 d2 d3 ... - descriptor invariants
%if descriptor_size<=1 the descriptor is ignored

(I'll use it later)

Anyway, I find quite difficult to use it from OpenCV since I didn't find any example/tutorial where it is used, so I have some questions:

  1. There is any example/tutorial where it is used from OpenCV to matlab? Could you provide one otherwise?
  2. This framework can be used also for binary detectors/descriptors?
  3. There is any equivalent tool in OpenCV?
  4. Is it correct to say that when we want to evaluate a detector we set descriptor_size=1 while we set descriptor_size=128 when we want to evaluate SIFT's descriptor (for example)?
