    problem installing package (SPR 3.3.2)

    Hi everyone,
    I am new to the Ubuntu OS and I've learning how to use it and how to install things and stuff.
    I am having troubles installing a package called StatPatternRecognition
    HTML Code:
    http://statpatrec.sourceforge.net/
    In the terminal I try to install it this way;
    ./ configure --prefix=$HOME/TRY4 so I can install the package in the folder TRY4.
    After it's done doing whatever it's doing, I type make. Then that takes a while and after a long series of words and number it displays errors at the end. Then I type make install and after 3 seconds it finishes with errors. These are the last lines the make install displays

    SprAddBaggersApp.cc: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
    SprAddBaggersApp.cc:47: error: ‘EOF’ was not declared in this scope
    make[1]: *** [SprAddBaggersApp.o] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jesusms/Downloads/SPR-3.3.2/src'
    make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1


    I have attached the config log file that the program created. I dont know if it's useful or relevant here, 'cause I dont even know what it says. I have no idea what's wrong. I tried installing in different directories, downloading many packages that it seem to need (like gcc or something like that), but nothing seems to work. Plus I am new to this OS so i have no idea what's going on.
    The program is (from what I understand) a data analysis software. I will have to use it for an assigment so I need to learn how to use it, but if I cant install it I cant learn how to use it.
    I will appreciate any help.
    Thank you.

    Re: problem installing package (SPR 3.3.2)

    Hello and welcome to the forum

    That source package appears to have a bunch of files (SprAddBaggersApp.cc is just the first) which use the EOF symbolic constant without including either <stdio.h> or <cstdio> - it's old code (seems to have been dormant for 5 or 6 years) so maybe that was legal in earlier versions of gcc / g++

    I managed to get it to build after fixing those inclusions - you can either run this one-liner in the SPR-3.3.2 directory:

    Code:
    while read -r file; do if [ $(grep -c '<stdio.h>' "$file") -eq 0 ]; then sed -i -re '0,/#include <[^>]+>/ s//#include <stdio.h>\n&/' "$file"; fi; done < <(find . -name '*.cc' -exec grep -l 'EOF' {} \;)
    (basically it searches for any .cc files that use 'EOF', then if they don't contain '<stdio.h>' it inserts '#include <stdio.h>' at the top of the standard inclusions). Or you can apply the attached patch file by placing it in your Downloads directory at the same level as your SPR-3.2.2 directory and then doing

    Code:
    patch -p1 < ../patch-SPR-3.3.2.txt
    from the SPR-3.2.2 directory

    Hope this helps

    Re: problem installing package (SPR 3.3.2)

    Thanks a lot! It did work and I think it installed correctly.
    However I can't open any of the files. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
    For example, I type,
    jesusms@jesusms-laptop:~/TRY7/bin$ ./exampleUserCuts
    and it shows
    Unable to open file gauss2_uniform_2d_train.pat
    Unable to read data from file gauss2_uniform_2d_train.pat
    Also, I tired the example on the package home page,

    jesusms@jesusms-laptop:~/TRY7/bin$ ./SprIOTestApp -a 1 cleveland.data
    Unable to open file cleveland.data
    Unable to read data from file cleveland.data

    all of those files are in the share folder under TRY7 folder. Am I supposed to open them manually first. If so, how?
    Thanks a lot.

    All the data files appear to be in the share subdirectory

    Code:
    t61p:~/TRY7$ find ../ -name '*.pat'
    ../share/gauss4_uniform_2d_valid.pat
    ../share/triangle_square_00_train.pat
    ../share/gauss4_uniform_2d_train.pat
    ../share/gauss_uniform_2d_train.pat
    ../share/tmva_root.pat
    ../share/lambda-test.pat
    ../share/trainRoot.pat
    ../share/discrete_square.pat
    ../share/gauss2_uniform_2d_train.pat
    ../share/gauss2_uniform_2d_train_root.pat
    ../share/gauss2_uniform_2d_valid.pat
    ../share/lambda-train.pat
    ../share/uniform_on_uniform_2d.pat
    ../share/gausscorr_uniform_2d_train.pat
    ../share/mlp_root.pat
    so instead of cd'ing into the bin directory and trying to run from there, cd into the share directory and give your executable path back to bin:

    Code:
    t61p:~/TRY7$ cd share/
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ 
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ ../bin/exampleUserCuts 
    Read data from file gauss2_uniform_2d_train.pat for variables "x1_plus_x2"
    Total number of points read: 2528
    Points in class 0: 2138 1: 390
    Output successfully closed.
    Or to make life easier you can add the bin directory to your PATH and then you can call the executables from anywhere without worrying about the path:

    Code:
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/TRY7/bin
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ 
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ exampleUserCuts 
    Read data from file gauss2_uniform_2d_train.pat for variables "x1_plus_x2"
    Total number of points read: 2528
    Points in class 0: 2138 1: 390
    Warning: file filtered.out will be deleted.
    Output successfully closed.
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ 
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$ SprIOTestApp -a 1 cleveland.data
    Read data from file cleveland.data for variables "age" "sex" "cp" "trestbps" "chol" "fbs" "restecg" "thalach" "exang" "oldpeak" "slope" "ca" "thal"
    Total number of points read: 303
    Found 5 classes in data:
      Class:          0(1)    Points:        164
      Class:          2(1)    Points:         36
      Class:          1(1)    Points:         55
      Class:          3(1)    Points:         35
      Class:          4(1)    Points:         13
    No input classes specified in string  Will use 0 and 1 by default.
    Training data filtered by class.
    Points in class 0(1):   164
    Points in class 1(1):   55
    t61p:~/TRY7/share$
    Good luck
