## command-line program reference

mlpack provides command-line executables for many of the algorithms it implements. These may be used to perform many machine learning tasks without the overhead of writing C++, or may be used as part of a larger machine learning solution.

Below is a list of the command-line executables mlpack 3.0.3 provides, with links to the documentation for each executable. This documentation may also be accessed with the --help parameter or through the man pages provided with your distribution of mlpack.
