openCV is a *huge* framework, that has nothing TODO with Pd.
it allows to develop applications that do all kind of weird 
computer-vision stuff.

luckily for us, some people created a number of Pd-externals on top of 
openCV, so we (you!) can now use openCV from within Pd.
those externals are called pix_opencv_... (if you are using Gem, which 
is likely as you seem to be on w32) and pdp_opencv_... (in case you are 
using pdp)
