an S4 class containing the trained maximum entropy model.

Description

An S4 class containing the trained maximum entropy model and its corresponding weights as a data.frame with three columns: Weight, Label, and Feature.

Objects from the Class

Objects could in principle be created by calls of the form new("maxent", ...). The preferred form is to have them created via a call to maxent.

Slots

model

Object of class "character": stores the trained maximum entropy model as returned from maxent

weights

Object of class "data.frame": contains the weights of the trained maximum entropy model, with three columns: Weight, Label, and Feature.
