Wrapper for constructing multi-target learners

This module also contains a wrapper, an auxilary learner, that can be used
to construct simple multi-target learners from standard learners designed
for data with a single class. The wrapper uses the specified base learner
to construct independent models for each class.

.. index:: MultitargetLearner
.. autoclass:: Orange.multitarget.MultitargetLearner

.. index:: MultitargetClassifier
.. autoclass:: Orange.multitarget.MultitargetClassifier


The following example uses a simple multi-target data set (generated with
:download:` <code/>`) to show
some basic functionalities (part of
:download:` <code/>`).

.. literalinclude:: code/
    :lines: 1-6

Multi-target learners can build prediction models (classifiers)
which then predict (multiple) class values for a new instance (continuation of
:download:` <code/>`):
