  Description     : Distributed Memory Based Learner

 Dimbl is a wrapper around the k-nearest neighbor classifier in TiMBL, offering
 parallel classification on multi-CPU machines.  Dimbl splits the original
 training set, builds separate TiMBL classifiers per training subset, and
 merges their nearest-neighbor sets per classified instance
 Dimbl's features are: * Wraps neatly around TiMBL, retaining all command line
 options; * Knows what to do with your multiple, duo, or quad cores; * Makes
 use of the OpenMP specification for parallel programming; * Can attain
 superlinear speed gains compared to standard TiMBL.
 Dimbl is a product of the ILK (Induction of Linguistic Knowledge) research
 group of the Tilburg University and the CNTS research group of the University
 of Antwerp.
 If you do scientific research in Natural Language Processing using the
 Memory-Based Learning technique, Dimbl will likely be of use to you.


Dimbl depends upon TiMBL, which is now in http://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html
