scikit-learn

There’s a lot more to Python’s `scikit` than I realized:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[~]% port search scikit

py27-scikit-image @0.10.1 (python, science)
Image processing algorithms for SciPy.

py27-scikit-learn @0.15.2 (python, science)
Easy-to-use and general-purpose machine learning in Python

py27-scikits-bootstrap @0.3.2 (python, science)
Bootstrap confidence interval estimation routines for SciPy.

py27-scikits-bvp_solver @1.1 (python, science)
bvp_solver is a Python package for solving two-point boundary value
problems.

py27-scikits-module @0.1 (python)
provides the files common to all scikits

py27-scikits-samplerate @0.3.3 (python, science, audio)
A Python module for high quality audio resampling
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And this is just the Python 2.7 offerings. There are similar offerings for 2.6, 3.2, and 3.3.

Speaking of 3.3, it looks like most of the libraries with which I work now have 3.3 compatible versions? Time to upgrade myself?

I also installed `scrapy` this morning. I’m not quite ready to scrape the web for my own work, but the library looked like it had some useful functionality that I could at least begin to get familiar with.

**EDITED** to defeat autocorrect, which had changed `scikit` to *sickout* and `scrapy` to *scrap* without my noticing.

**Also**: many thanks again to Michel Fortin and his amazing [Markdown PHP plug-in][]. The code fence blocks are a real time-saver: no need to indent everything with four spaces after a colon. Just block off code with the same number of tildes on either end. *Done*.
