Usage

To import the package to use in your project

import lexlib as lx

Note

All of the submodules are imported by lexlib. That means that you can call, for example, lx.get_neighbor_pairs() instead of lx.neighbors.get_neighbor_pairs().

For documentation on specific functions, see the docs/ directory or the online documentation or enter help(lx.function_name) into your interpreter.
