ids2ngram - generate n-gram data file from ids file


ids2ngram [option]... ids_file...


ids2ngram generates idngram file, which is a sorted [id1,..,idN,freq] array, from binary
id stream files. Here, the id stream files are always generated by mmseg or slmseg.
Basically, it finds all occurrence of n-words tuples (i.e. the tuple of (id1,..,idN)), and
sorts these tuples by the lexicographic order of the ids make up the tuples, then write
them to specified output file.


The input file is presented as a binary id stream, which looks like:


All the following options are mandatory.

-n,--NMax N
Generates N-gram result. ids2ngram does only support uni-gram, bi-gram, and trigram,
so any number not in the range of 1..3 is not valid.

-s,--swap swap-file
Specify the temporary intermediate file.

-o, --out output-file
Specify the result idngram file, e.g. the array of [id1, ..., idN, freq]

-p, --para N
Specify the maximum n-gram items per paragraph. ids2ngram writes to the temporary file
on a per-paragraph basis. Every time it writes a paragraph out, it frees the
corresponding memory allocated for it. When your computer system permits, a higher N
is suggested. This can speed up the processing speed because of less I/O.


Following example will use three input idstream file idsfile[1,2,3] to generate the
idngram file all.id3gram. Each para (internal map size or hash size) would be 1024000,
using swap file for temp result. All temp para result would eventually be merged to got
the final result.

ids2ngram -n 3 -s /tmp/swap -o all.id3gram -p 1024000 idsfile1 idsfile2 idsfile3
