Several changes were made to the original source code: The maximum number of instances was increased from 110 to 5,000 and the maximum number of characters in class names was increased to 20 (config.h). The program was changed to return status 0 upon exit if the run was successful. A severe bug was fixed in the way weighted voting is handled.

Supported options are: PEBLS_DISCRETIZATION_LEVELS, PEBLS_NEAREST_NEIGHBORS, and PEBLS_VOTING_SCHEME. The executable pebls must be in the current path.
