What is Vowpal Wabbit?
What does rvw do?
You will need the
vw binary in your path. On Debian / Ubuntu systems to
sudo apt-get install vowpal-wabbiit
On other systems follow the Vowpal Wabbit instructions.
Several demos are included in the
demo/ directory and accessible (once installed) via the
demo() function. Here
are tow figures from

Still being worked on.
