so I am new to machine learning, and ive been trying to open "OpenCV" on my Mac (Big Sur 11.2.3). im under the impression that I need Xcode and other programs like home brew to download first

I got Xcode, and typed this command into my terminal app:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

it seems to work...but then there's this:

==> Next steps:
- Run `brew help` to get started
- Further documentation:

I don know what "brew help" is..

OpenCV is still not opening properly using the Xcode app

do I really need to copy and paste like a thousand commands into my terminal app???
I am wondering if any one can give me the simplest list of prerequisites to open and run OpenCV...!!!

I installed XCode in the ordinary way, installed MacPorts in the ordinary way, and then installed opencv3 using "port -v install opencv3" in a terminal.
