How do we use these programs that we've compiled? We run the programs in the
order of generate, cluster then display. A small
blurb earlier describes what each program basically does. We'll go into greater
detail here. To get a quick demonstration of the program run
How does that work? generate creates a data set. The generated data
set has noise points (ie points not in a cluster) and cluster points. It then
outputs this data. cluster then reads in the data sent from generate.
The cluster program then uses the default clustering algorithm (-MEANS)
on the data the default algorithm is random, where we randomly assign a cluster
to each point. The data output from cluster is then read in by display.
This is then reinterpreted and displayed on the screen.
- ./generate | ./cluster | ./display
