NevProp: General purpose backpropagation in C.
NevProp is a C implementation of general purpose backpropagation
software, based on Quickprop 1.0 by Scott Fahlman, as translated from
Common Lisp into C by Terry Regier. The quickprop algorithm itself
has not changed substantially, but it now includes options to force
gradient descent (per-epoch or per-pattern), generalization & stopped
training, c index, and interface enhancements.
Questions and comments regarding the Quickprop algorithm itself should
be directed to Scott Fahlman at email@example.com. Issues pertaining
to NevProp code or functionality itself should be directed to the authors.
