Voted perceptron classifier

    W = VPC(A)
    W = VPC(A, N)

 A Dataset
 N Number of sweeps

 W Voted perceptron classifier


The classifier trains an ensemble of perceptrons on dataset A. The  training procedure performs N full sweeps through the training data. If N is not specified, 10 sweeps are performed. The total number of  perceptrons in the ensemble is equal to N x GETSIZE(A, 1).

The classification of new objects is performed by allowing the ensemble  of perceptrons to vote on the label of each test point.
