The Clusutils package contains two programs to assist researchers in their study of data clustering algorithms. The clusgen program generates artificial data sets. The cluscomp program compares partitions of a data set, and returns an index (between plus/minus 1) which is a measure of the correspondence of the partitions with each other.
The Clusutils package is currently being developed on a machine running the Linux operating system but it should be able to be compiled with any fairly modern C++ compiler.
I have compiled and tested Clusutils with gcc 2.95.x on Linux (RedHat 6.2 and Mandrake 7.0), FreeBSD 4.0, Solaris (SunOS 5.7) and a Win2k box running Cygwin 1.1.0.
I would really appreciate hearing from anyone using, or interested in using the Clusutils applications. Please email me, Dan Pape, at dpape at users.sourceforge.net.
