Method Detail

detect

double detect()
Detects a feature.

Returns:
value from 0.0 to 1.0 representing the degree to which the feature occurs.

getPamLinkable

PamLinkable getPamLinkable()
Returns PamLinkable this algorithm can detect.

Returns:
the pam nodes

setPamLinkable

void setPamLinkable(PamLinkable linkable)
Adds PamLinkable that will be detected by this algorithm.

Parameters:
linkable - s PamLinkable
