== DESCRIPTION:

Rarff is a Ruby library for dealing with Attribute-Relation File Format (ARFF) files. ARFF files are used to specify data sets for data mining and machine learning.


== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

=== FEATURES
* Missing values - '?' are handled in creation of ARFF files

=== PROBLEMS
* Spaces or quotes in nominal types
* Commas in quoted attributes or in nominal types
* Add error checking/validation
* Creation of sparse ARFF files
* Dates - do some work to create, translate, and interpret date format strings.

== SYNOPSIS:

    arff_file_str = <<-END_OF_ARFF_FILE
@RELATION MyCoolRelation
@ATTRIBUTE Attr0 NUMERIC
@ATTRIBUTE subject STRING
@ATTRIBUTE Attr2 NUMERIC
@ATTRIBUTE Attr3 STRING
@ATTRIBUTE birthday DATE "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"
@DATA
1.4, 'foo bar', 5, baz, "1900-08-08 12:12:12"
20.9, ruby, 46, rocks, "2005-10-23 12:12:12"
0, ruby, 46, rocks, "2001-02-19 12:12:12"
68.1, stuff, 728, 'is cool', "1974-02-10 12:12:12"
    END_OF_ARFF_FILE

    arff_file_str.gsub!(/\n$/, '')

    instances = [ [1.4, 'foo bar', 5, 'baz', "1900-08-08 12:12:12"],
      [20.9, 'ruby', 46, 'rocks', "2005-10-23 12:12:12"],
      [0, 'ruby', 46, 'rocks', "2001-02-19 12:12:12"],
      [68.1, 'stuff', 728, 'is cool', "1974-02-10 12:12:12"]]

    rel = Rarff::Relation.new('MyCoolRelation')
    rel.instances = instances
    rel.attributes[1].name = 'subject'
    rel.attributes[4].name = 'birthday'
    rel.attributes[4].type = 'DATE "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"'

    #               puts "rel.to_arff:\n(\n#{rel.to_arff}\n)\n"
    assert_equal(arff_file_str, rel.to_arff, "Arff creation test failed.")
