clm_meet - compute the intersection of a set of clusterings.
clmmeet is not in actual fact a program. This manual page documents the behaviour and options of the clm program when invoked in mode meet. The options -h, --apropos, --version, -set, --nop are accessible in all clm modes. They are described in the clm manual page.


clm meet [-o fname (output file name)] [-h (print synopsis, exit)] [--apropos (print synopsis, exit) ] [--version (print version, exit)] <file name>+


clm meet computes the intersection of a set of clusterings, that is, the largest clustering that is a subclustering of all the clusterings in the set. It stores the intersection (or meet) in the argument to the -o flag, which must be the first option given. All remaining arguments are interpreted as names of files containing clusterings in mcl format (see mcxio(5)), which must all pertain to a set of the same cardinality.
This utility can be useful in measuring (in conjunction with clm dist) the consistency of a set of clusterings at different levels of granularity - if the meet of all those clusterings is close to being a subclustering of each of them, consistency is good. See clm dist for an example.
