Bag-Of-Words Library ToDo's
===========================

* Write bow_barrel_new_from_file(), so we don't get so confused about
  NOT closing the FP.
* Make new versions of structure-file-saving code that take a filename
  and a directory name.  It will be easier to use them.

* Rename `bow_cdoc->length' to `bow_cdoc->norm'
* Rename `bow_cdoc->filename' to `bow_cdoc->name'
* Make `bow_cdoc->class' be a vector of floats.
* Rename `bow_wi2dvf_dv()' to `bow_wi2dvf_dv_at_wi()'
* Standardize on use of either `entry' or `entries'.
* Rename all `2' to `_to_'.
* Rename all bow_dv_heap* to bow_dvheap*.
* Rename bow_dv_heap_update() to bow_dvheap_next().


* change bow_cdoc->word_count from int to float (or double)

Remove rainbow_classnames
Are all filename_to_classname() calls still necessary?
Examine vpc() and fix to take advantage of barrel->classnames.
In rainbow_print_weight_vector() find the class index more efficiently.
Likewise for rainbow_print_foilgain()
Rename bow_free_barrel() to bow_barrel_free...something.
Free heaps in places that they are not!
Rename bow_prune_words_by_doc_count_n to bow_prune_vocab_by_doc_count_n
Change all occurrences of "prune" to "hide".
Take a look at (lex-suffixing.c)bow_lexer_suffixing_get_word - might want
  to change bow_lexer_html_get_raw_word to bow_default_lexer->get_word

Andrew,

Here are some comments I wrote down when I was learning my way around bow.
You said you'd like to see these someday.  They are things that I think
might need to be explaining in any bow documentation that might get written
in the future.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

These are "gotchas" that should be addressed in any documentation that is
written about the bag of words library.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

The document vectors in a barrel are not all loaded at the beginning, but are
loaded only on demand.  Thus, to access one you should use bow_wi2dvf_dv().

The documents in a bow_dv are not in the array in any particular order.  To
access one you should use _bow_dv_index_for_di().  However, if you try to
access
a di that does not exist, this function will automatically make space for it.
Maybe there should be a similar function that returns NULL if the requested di
does not exist.

There is a function bow_wi2dvf_dv(bow_wi2dvf *, int) which returns a dv*
from a
wi2dvf.  This would make you think that you should acess the dv's this way:
        dv1 = bow_wi2dvf_dv(wi2dvf, wi);
But then there is a function
bow_dv_add_di_count_weight(bow_dv**, int, int, float) that modifies the
entries
in the dv.  You'd think that if you accessed a dv as above, you could then add
to it like this:
        bow_dv_add_di_count_weight(&dv1, di, count, weight);
But this won't work because the original dv that you really should be
accessing
is wi2dvf->entry[wi].dv.  Changing dv1 only changes a (presumably) local
variable.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----
Other Questions
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

What is the protocol regarding "hidden" words?

Are the wi's guaranteed to span the range 0..n with no holes?

What is the difference between size and num_words, or length in all
the structures?  Are the differences consistent throughout?  It seems
like size is the number of items for which memory has been allocated
and num_words or length is the number of items that are actually being
used.
