SYNOPSIS
msvmocas [options] example_file model_fileDESCRIPTION
msvmocas is a program that trains a multiclass linear SVM classifier using the Optimized Cutting Plane Algorithm for Support Vector Machines (OCAS) and produces a model file.example_file is a file with training examples in SVM^light format, and model_file is the file in which to store the learned linear rule f(x)=W'*x. model_file contains M columns and D lines, where M is the number of classes and D the number of dimensions, corresponding to the elements of the matrix W [D x M].
OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below.General options:
 h
 Show summary of options.
 v (01)
 Set the verbosity level (default: 1)
Learning options:
 c float
 Regularization constant C. (default: 1)
 n integer
 Use only the first integer examples for training. By default, integer equals the number of examples in example_file.
Optimization options:
 m (01)

Solver to be used:

0 ... standard cutting plane (equivalent to BMRM, SVM^perf) 1 ... OCAS (default)

 s integer
 Cache size for cutting planes. (default: 2000)
Stopping conditions:
 a float
 Absolute tolerance TolAbs: halt if QPQD <= TolAbs. (default: 0)
 r float
 Relative tolerance TolAbs: halt if QPQD <= abs(QP)*TolRel. (default: 0.01)
 q float
 Desired objective value QPValue: halt is QP <= QPValue. (default: 0)
 t float
 Halts if the solver time (loading time is not counted) exceeds the time given in seconds. (default: infinity)
EXAMPLES
Train the multiclass SVM classifier from example file example4_train.light, with the regularization constant C=10, verbosity switched off, and save model to msvmocas.model:

msvmocas c 10 v 0 example4_train.light msvmocas.model
Compute the testing error of the classifier stored in msvmocas.model with linclassif(1) using testing examples from example4_test.light and save the predicted labels to example4_test.pred:

linclassif e o example4_test.pred example4_test.light msvmocas.model
