OpenCV on Arch Linux

Computer vision seems to be an interesting field to explore in. This is a simple tutorial on how to get OpenCV up and running on Arch Linux. A short C++ program is provided to confirm that OpenCV was successfully installed and compilation with OpenCV libraries actually works. To keep it simple, the provided code is quite minimal and will only load a picture, convert it to grayscale and then display both pictures in two separate windows.
