Besides traditional one-letter POSIX-style options, cluscomp also supports GNU long options. Options begin with a dash, and consist of a single character. GNU style long options consist of two dashes and a keyword. If the option takes an argument, then the keyword is immediately followed by whitespace and then the argument's value.

In general, cluscomp is invoked with the following usage:

> cluscomp [options] datafile1 datafile2 ... datafileN

If more than two datafiles are specified on the command line, cluscomp will compute indexes between each unique pair. However, if one wants to only compute indexes between one standard datafile and many others, then the -s option can be used (see below).



Prints a short summary of the command line options.


By default, cluscomp computes the Hubert-Arabie Object Triple index. This option selects the Corrected Rand Index algorithm instead.


Consider the first datafile as containing the standard data partition, and only compute indexes between the other datafiles and it -- not between the other datafiles themselves.


Perform data comparisons based on the "name" attribute rather than the "id" attribute.
