Amis is a parameter estimator for maximum entropy models . Given a set of events as training data, the program outputs parameters that optimize the likelihood of the training data.
% tar xvzf amis-x.y.z.tar.gz % cd amis-x.y.z % ./configure % make install
This procedure installs "/usr/local/bin/amis" (you must have an access to "/usr/local/bin/"). If you want to install it in another directory, see Amis manual.
