Algorithm::SVM and Algorithm::SVM::DataSet currently provide an
interface to libSVM (http://www.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~cjlin/libsvm /).

The makers of libSVM have written a guide on how best to use libSVM if
you're not an expert on SVMs (Chih-Wei Hsu, Chih-Chung Chang, and Chih-
Jen Lin : http://www.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~cjlin/papers/guide/guide.pdf ).

The aim of Algorithm::SVM::Simple is to automate the process suggested
in the guide, and thereby simplify the interface to the SVM a little.

How many people are interested in this module?  Any name suggestions?

It sounds like a good idea to me, although I'm not qualified to speak
very much. I was a little interested in SVMs for a handwriting
recognition project I have, but it was a little hard to understand the
topic.

I'm not sure that support vector machines are a pure "algorithm" so
I'd suggest using an upper name which had more to do with pattern
recognition. But it seems that the modules are already there.
