Find periodic patterns repecting the order of items

Hi philippe and all,
Your PFPM algorithm is very interesting. However, if i want to conserve order of items which part of your code can i modify ? Let me give more explanations. If the current itemset is {a,b}, algorithm will found it in the itemSet {a,b,c} and also in itemset {a,c,b}. I want PFPM just found {a,b} in {a,b,c} and not in {a,c,b} because in this itemset order of {a,b} is not respect.

In general, in itemset mining, there is no order between the items in an itemset. Thus, {a,b,c} and {a,c,b} are the same itemset.

The PFPM algorithm is thus designed with that assumption that there is no order in an itemset.

You could change that. But that would require some programming. If you want to do that, you should read the code or make sure that you understand the algorithm well first and then find the way to modify it. Personally, I did not think about it. But I think you can certainly do it.

Best regards,
