PAFI Software Package for Finding Frequent Patterns in Diverse Datasets

The PAFI pattern discovery package is currently distributed as a single file that contains binary distributions for Linux and Sun platforms.

Getting the files
The first step in using PAFI is to download the binary distribution file. PAFI's distribution is available as either a Unix gziped tar file or as a Windows zip file.
Available files for download
gziped tar file zip file

Older versions of PAFI can be found here.

On Unix systems, after downloading PAFI you need to uncompress and untar it. This is achieved by executing the following command:
gunzip pafi-1.0.1.tar.gz

tar -xvf pafi-1.0.1.tar

On Windows systems, you need to have a zip/unzip program (e.g., winzip) in order to unzip the files. In general, you just need to double click on "" and the file will be unzipped automatically.

At this point you should have a directory named pafi-1.0.1. This directory contains PAFI's programs and some test datasets.

Instructions describing how to use PAFI can be found at pafi-1.0.1/manual.pdf. You can get a local copy of this documentation from here.
