python> Contains python modules for seriation. The perl script has been entirely rewritten into python and this is the version> that we are using for most of the development.
analysis> Contains R, mathematica, and other scripts aimed at analyzing the basic problem and trial algorithms,> before being implemented in software. Also will contain benchmarks and performance analysis of finished> software versions, to document scaling of the algorithms and optimizations.
doc> Software documentation, installation instructions, FAQs, todo lists
java> Main root directory for a Java library implementing the seriation algorithms, for embedding in many types of > systems. May also contain simple UI implementations (CLI, web app) to run seriations.
manuscripts> Directories containing journal manuscripts describing the algorithm or applying it to data. Each directory> represents a separate paper and is self-contained.
output> Directory for writing finished seriation solutions for test data sets. This provides common configuration for > software implementations and system tests.
perl> Perl implementation of the seriation algorithm. This serves as our initial testing ground and way of trying > ideas for optimizations, and it will be useful long-term for small or "normal" data sets.
testdata> Repository of real and idealized data sets used to test the algorithm and implementations.
