7.1 kmeans configure

20211121 The kmeans package is Python based and utilises the system application ffmpeg for generating a video of the algorithm in action. Python libraries utilised include numpy, matplotlib, pandas, and scikit-learn. On a Ubuntu system the first three can be system installed as python3-numpy, python3-matplotlib, and python3-pandas. The scikit-learn library can be installed from PyPI. For MacOS they can all be installed from PyPI.
