|3. Core Interpreter and Startup Library
All functions available at startup within the default environment
lsh/lushenv.lsh are described here. This includes the core
interpreter functions, library functions defined in
sys/sysenv.lsh , and all the files in
lsh/libstd (loaded at startup).
Functions described in this section are largely obsolete. They are
included in the standard library for convenience and backward
|3.21. Outdated Documentation
This section contains documentation that is no longer maintained or
exactly relevant to the current version or implementation of Lush. Some
users may still find it useful.
Descriptions of all the libraries that are distributed with Lush, in the
lsh directory, that are not loaded by default into the
|7.7. Tensor/Matrix/Vector/Scalar Libraries
Author(s): Yann LeCun
Packages are libraries that are not considered part of the standard
library because they may not be available on all platforms or be useful
to everybody. These are generally built around popular pre-existing C
libraries that have been interfaced to Lush with a binding layer to
facilitate their use in Lush applications.
Current packages include:
- Numerical Functions Library for Linear Algebra, Complex
Numbers, Vectors, Matrices, etc., as well as a Low-Level Interface to
the GNU Scientific Library (GSL)
- Gradient-Based Machine Learning Algorithms Class Library, includes:
neural nets, convolutional nets, and many others.
- SDL Environment for writing simple video games
- OpenGL/GLUT 3D Graphics API Interface
- OpenInventor 3D Scene Rendering Engine Interface.
- LAPACK/BLAS Linear Algebra Libraries Interface (Complete)
- Intel Computer Vision Library Interface
- Video4Linux Video-Grabbing API Interface
- MIDI ALSA/sequencer device
- Various devices, such as serial port, parallel port, and joystick
- Low-level Advanced Linux Sound Architecture API (Alsa) Interface
High-level interfaces to various numerical packages.
Libraries for machine learning, statistical estimation, and pattern
High-level interfaces to audio, MIDI and music-related libraries.
|8.4. Images, Video, Multimedia, Graphics, Games
High-level interfaces to various libraries for processing images and
videos, and for producing graphics, multimedia, and games.
|8.6. Numerical Libraries (low-level interfaces)
These interface merely provide raw, low-level stubs to various
libraries. Most users will probably have little use for these and will
prefer the high-level interfaces.
|8.7. Miscellaneous low-level interfaces
These are collections of stubs for various libraries.
Applications are Lush programs (generally with a graphical user
interface) that are useful by themselves without any programming.
