  Description     : OCAS solver for training linear SVM classifiers

This library implements Optimized Cutting Plane Algorithm (OCAS) for training
 linear SVM classifiers from large-scale data. The computational effort of OCAS
 scales with O(m log m) where m is the sample size. In an extensive empirical
 evaluation OCAS significantly outperforms current state of the art SVM solvers,
 like SVM^light, SVM^perf and BMRM, achieving speedups of over 1,000 on some
 datasets over SVM^light and 20 over SVM^perf, while obtaining the same precise
 Support Vector solution.
  * SVM solvers for training linear classifiers from large scale-data
  * Binary (two-class) and genuine multi-class SVM formulations
  * Optimized code written in C
  * Reads examples from SVM^light format
  * Optimized for both sparse and dense features
  * Parallelized version of the binary solver
  * binary solver)
  * Tools for classification
  * Training translation invariant image classifiers from virtual examples
  * Functions for computing image features based on Local Binary Patterns
