Implementation of R package CAISEr, with routines for automatically determining the sample size needed for performing comparative experiments with algorithms.

To install the most up-to-date version directly from Github, simply type:


The most recent CRAN release of the package is also available for installation directly from the R prompt, using:


For instructions and examples of use, please take a look at the vignette Adapting Algorithms for CAISEr, and at the package documentation, particularly functions run_experiment() and run_nreps2().

Please send any bug reports, questions, suggestions, chocolate (to Fernanda) or beers (to Felipe - we can always hope!) directly to the package authors listed at the top of this document.
