A random sample of objects can be generated from an arbitrary model and stored to a directory on disk using the function writeSample. This shows how to retrieve that stored sample and have it loaded as an object of type Sample:

i1 : writeSample(sample(ER(2,3,0.1),5), "testDirectory") |

i2 : mySample = sample("testDirectory") o2 = Sample{...4...} o2 : Sample |

i3 : peek mySample o3 = Sample{ModelName => Erdos-Renyi } Parameters => (2, 3, .1) SampleSize => 5 2 2 2 2 2 Data => {{x , x x }, {0}, {x x , x x }, {0}, {x x }} 1 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 |

- Sample -- a type used to store a data sample from a statistical model
- writeSample -- write sample data to a directory
- Model -- a type used to store a statistical model and its parameters
