32Description
33-----------
34
35Linear Regression widget construct a learner/predictor that learns a
36linear function from its input data. Furthermore `Lasso`_ and `Ridge`_
37regularization parameters can be specified.

44    1. The learner/predictor name
45    2. Train an ordinary least squares or ridge regression model
46    3. If ``Ridge lambda`` is checked the learner will build a ridge regression model
47       with |4| as the ``lambda`` parameter.
48    4. Ridge lambda parameter.
49    5. Use `Lasso`_ regularization.
50    6. The Lasso bound (bound on the beta vector L1 norm)
51    7. Tolerance (any beta value lower then this will be forced to 0)
