CVwParser Class Reference

Detailed Description

CVwParser is the object which provides the functions to parse examples from buffered input.

An instance of this class can be created in CStreamingVwFile and the appropriate read_*_features function called to parse examples from different formats.

It also encapsulates a CVwCacheWriter object which may be used in case a cache file is to be generated simultaneously with parsing.

Creates a clone of the current object. This is done via recursively traversing all parameters, which corresponds to a deep copy. Calling equals on the cloned object always returns true although none of the memory of both objects overlaps.

Returns
