Contrib packages are non-official Torch packages. They might be not stable yet, not working on all platforms, not documented. Anyways, they might be useful! So we created for that purpose an external repository gathering these contributions. If you want to use them, go in you Torch directory and checkout them with:
cd torch svn checkout https://torch5-contrib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/torch5-contrib/trunk contribThis will create a
contribdirectory containing all these packages. Note that the name must be contrib.
Torch configuration will detect this optional
contrib directory. As each
of these packages might not be stable yet, they do not compile by
default. You must enable the variable
WITH_CONTRIB_xxxx at CMake
configuration time, where
xxxx is the name the package of interest, to
enable the compilation of
xxxx. This is easily achieved by toggling the
variable in CMake GUI. Refer to the CMake hints section
for more details on CMake variables.
