SOM_PAK and LVQ_PAKTwo public-domain softare packages, SOM_PAK for the Self-Organizing Map algorithm and LVQ_PAK for the Learning Vector Quantization algorithms are provided (current versions are 3.1). These program packages have been developed to demonstrate the implementation of these algorithms and to ease first experiments.
Downloading using WWWBoth program packages SOM_PAK and LVQ_PAK, as well as the reference lists are available on our www-site. Searches on the bibliography can be done on a search server.
Compiling in Microsoft WindowsThe program packages were originally developed mainly for Unix. They could also be compiled for MS-DOS by using Borland C++ Version 3.1. Microsoft Windows nor other compilers have never been actively supported. It seems now that Borland has made it command line C++Builder Compiler publicly available, see http://www.borland.com/bcppbuilder/freecompiler/.
This is what you probably should set in makefile.dos in order to use it with Borland C++Builder Compiler version 5.5:
CC = bcc32 CFLAGS = -I/borland/bcc55/include -5 -O2 -DMSDOS LDFLAGS = -L/borland/bcc55/lib
Preferred referencesWe have written two technical reports, one for the SOM_PAK and another for LVQ_PAK, for bibliographical purposes. The reports are available on-line. The references to these reports are:
Mail addressThe currently preferred mail addresses for SOM_PAK and LVQ_PAK are firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com but they are at present read very rarely. Note that the addresses are different from the addresses given in the documentation!
More information about the packagesMore information about the packages is available from Jussi Hynninen's SOM_PAK page (unofficial page).
