This simple example demonstrates how to wrap Bob-based scripts on buildout
environments. This may be useful for homework assignments, tests or as a way to
distribute code to reproduce your publication. In summary, if you need to give
out code to others, we recommend you do it following this template so your code
can be tested, documented and run in an orderly fashion.

Scripts to run biometric recognition experiments
This package contains basic functionality to run biometric recognition experiments.
It provides a generic ``./bin/`` script that takes several parameters, including:
* A database and its evaluation protocol
* A data preprocessing algorithm
* A feature extraction algorithm
* A biometric recognition algorithm
All these steps of the biometric recognition system are given as configuration files.
.. note::
In this base class implementation, only a few algorithms (such as PCA, LDA, PLDA, BIC) are implemented, while most algorithms that are more specialized are provided by other packages, which are usually in the ```` namespace, such as:
To follow these instructions locally you will need a local copy of this
package. For that, you can use the github tarball API to download the package::
* ` <>`_ for face recognition databases, features and algorithms
* ` <>`_ for speaker recognition recognition databases, features and algorithms
* ` <>`_ for Gaussian-Mixture-model-based algorithms
* ` <>`_ for video-based databases and algorithms
$ wget --no-check-certificate -O- | tar xz
$ mv idiap-bob.project* bob.project.example
Documentation and Further Information
Additionally, a generic script ``./bin/`` is provided that can generate several types of plots (such as ROC, DET and CMC curves) and compute several measures (such as HTER, Cllr) to evaluate your experiments.
