DESCRIPTION

Describe a dataset's content

This command can produce a number of reports for datasets. Currently supported are summary statistics in text format, as well as basic plots. See the --report option for more information.  

OPTIONS

--version
show program's version and license information and exit
-h, --help, --help-np
show this help message and exit. --help-np forcefully disables the use of a pager for displaying the help.
-i DATASET [DATASET ...], --input DATASET [DATASET ...]
path(s) to one or more PyMVPA dataset files. All datasets will be merged into a single dataset (vstack'ed) in order of specification. In some cases this option may need to be specified more than once if multiple, but separate, input datasets are required.
-r {txtsummary,sample_histogram}, --report {txtsummary,sample_histogram}
choose a type of report. Default: terse summary in text format.
 

Options for transforming dataset content before plotting:

--numpy-xfm SPEC
apply a Numpy function along a given axis of the samples before generating the dataset info summary. For example, 'samples:std' will apply the 'std' function along the samples axis, i.e. compute a vector of standard deviations for all features in a dataset
 

Options for plot formatting:

--figure-title FIGURE_TITLE
title for a plot
--histogram-bins VALUE
number of bin for histograms
--xlim XLIM XLIM
minimum and maximum value of the x-axis extent in a figure
--ylim YLIM YLIM
minimum and maximum value of the y-axis extent in a figure
--x-marker X_MARKER [X_MARKER ...]
list of x-value to draw markers on in a figure
--y-marker Y_MARKER [Y_MARKER ...]
list of y-value to draw markers on in a figure
 

Options for dataset description:

--target-attr NAME
name of a samples attributes defining 'target'. This information is used to define groups of samples when generating information on the within and between category data structure in a dataset.
