get_target_signature - Gets target signature.


#include "lsm/lsm_emd.h"

Example compile flags (system dependent):

  -lKJB                               -lfftw3  -lgsl -lgslcblas -ljpeg  -lSVM -lstdc++                    -lpthread -lSLATEC -lg2c    -lacml -lacml_mv -lblas -lg2c      -lncursesw 

int get_target_signature
	Signature **target_sig_ptr_ptr,
	const int num_features


This routine implements the creation/over-writing semantics used in the KJB library in the case of signatures. If *target_sig_ptr_ptr is NULL, then this routine creates the signature. If the target signature is not NULL and is the correct size, then this routine does nothing (recycles the memory). If the target signature is the wrong size, then it is freed abd reallocated. Distributions are stored in signatures which consist of an array of features and a corresponding array of feature weights. A "signature" is defined as follows: | typedef struct Signature
        int      num_features; Number of features in the signature
        Vector** feature_vec;  Pointer to array of features
        double*    weights_vec;  Pointer to array of feature weights
    } Signature;
In the emd_lib.c module, a "feature" is simply a KJB Vector. All features should have the same length. Each feature in a signature has a corresponding weight indicating its relative abundance in the distribution. All weights should sum to 1.


Either NO_ERROR, or ERROR, with an appropriate error message being set.

This software is not adequatedly tested. It is recomended that results are checked independantly where appropriate.
