      extended by org.moeaframework.analysis.tools.ARFFConverter

public class ARFFConverter
extends CommandLineUtility

Converts a result file into an ARFF file that can be loaded into various data mining software (e.g., Weka). This tool has two limitations that the user must be aware. First, it only converts the last entry in the result file. Second, it can only convert real-valued decision variables. Any other decision variable types will appear as missing values in the ARFF file.

Usage: java -cp "..." org.moeaframework.analysis.tools.ARFFConverter <options>

Arguments:

-b, --problem The name of the problem. This name should reference one of the problems recognized by the MOEA Framework.
-d, --dimension The number of objectives (use instead of -b).
-i, --input The result file containing the input data.
-o, --output The output file where the extract data will be saved.

-n, --names The names for the decision variables and objectives, separated by commas.
