vkkan has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am fairly new to perl so please forgive me if I ask lame doubt.
I have installed strawberry perl with PDL in winxp box. I am trying to do given below task.
Group customer based the service they took from us.
data: mysql table with 150K records and it will grow exponentially with columns name,phone,amountpaid,service,dateofaction
output: all I want is flag the customer with group name
Service is the text filed with free flow of texture based on that i have to form a group lets say If you find X instances of “Y” description in billing field in past “Z” months Then add to “A” group
While googling i found that cluster analysis will do the trick using Perl, can some point me right direction to learn and how to do this task?
Highly appreciated all of your help on this.
