This application is compatible with PHP 7.1+ with the curl extension enabled.

Clone this repository to a local directory and run composer:

git clone https://github.com/symlex/stream-sampler.git
cd stream-sampler
composer update

Alternatively you can run composer to create a new project from the latest stable release and fetch external dependencies:

composer create-project symlex/stream-sampler my-stream-sampler

Composer will ask for config values to generate app/config/parameters.yml for you.

YAML files located in app/config configure the app based on parameters and services. The main config file is app/config/console.yml.

What does a stream sampler do?

It randomly returns a representative sample of k items from a stream of values with unknown and possibly very large length. The implementation relies on Algorithm R, which has a complexity of O(N). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reservoir_sampling

Usage

app/console sample [options]

Options:
  -i, --input[=INPUT]   Input source (stdin, random.org, internal) [default: "stdin"]
  -s, --size[=SIZE]     Sample size (1 - 2000) [default: 5]
  -V, --version         Display the application version
      --ansi            Force ANSI output
      --no-ansi         Disable ANSI output

Note: If you're using random.org or the internal random character source, input data size will be 10 times the sample size. The maximum sample size is 2000.

# app/console sample -i internal -s 10
