#2 Updated by J. Moringen about 6 years ago

Minor changes are attached.

Discussion-worthy:
  • Should the property fields be key-value collections (as suggested in the attached patch)?
  • Since there seems to be no relation to other types in the rst.graph package and the new types would just as well fit into rst.inference (if we actually had that), maybe a separate package rst.bayesnetwork would be better?

The XMLBIF works with string properties of undefined format so using a key-value collection would hinder the interoperability with the existing format.

    <PROPERTY>size 12</PROPERTY>
    <PROPERTY>comment Trial number ten</PROPERTY>
    <PROPERTY>position = (154, 241)</PROPERTY>

I used the rst.graph package because a bayes network is a graph. What about rst.graph.bayesnetwork?.

OK.

I used the rst.graph package because a bayes network is a graph. What about rst.graph.bayesnetwork?.

I understand. My argument was that Bayesian networks should get their own package since they cannot simultaneously be contained in the multiple domains (graph, inference, graphical model, stochastics) they belong to.

That is a good point. In this case the rst.bayesnetwork package would be okay.

Could you change that? I do not know how to apply your diff to my project :-)
