Bug#505487: ITP: ann -- Approximate Nearest Neighbor Searching library

  Programming Lang: C++ and Octave
  Description     : Approximate Nearest Neighbor Searching library

    ANN is a library written in C++, which supports data structures and
    algorithms for both exact and approximate nearest neighbor searching
    in arbitrarily high dimensions.  ANN assumes that distances
    are measured using any class of distance functions called Minkowski
    metrics. These include the well known Euclidean distance, Manhattan
    distance, and max distance. ANN performs quite efficiently for point
    sets ranging in size from thousands to hundreds of thousands, and in
    dimensions as high as 20.

The necessary autotools support (autoconf, automake, and libtool) has been
added to this package, in order to generate a shared library, thanks to the
initial work done by Alexander Bornik.  This package will eventually become
a dependency of the octave-ann package (not yet released, see Bug#480760).
A preliminary version of the package can be found at:
