dimbl - Distributed Timbl
dimbl [timbl options] [-S <num of threads>]
dimbl extends timbl
with the possibility to run the classification task
on multiple threads. This is done by splitting up the Instancebase in parts
that are handled in parallel. Every test instance is tested against each
partial Instancebase. The results are merged and then the k Nearest Neighbours
dimbl only works for the IB1 variants of timbl.
Not all timbl options are fully supported.
Documentation is lacking.
run the server on 'threads' parallel
options are documenented in timbl
dimbl handles most of them in the same way as timbl
will create 'threads' Instancebase files and store their names in
'filename' together with the name of the weighting file.
will use such a file to read back in 'threads' Instancebases for a
classifying task. The -S
option is ignored in that case. dimbl
will use the number of files found in 'filename'.
