# 1) generate an iid normal random matrix of 100x10 
data <- matrix( rnorm(100*10,mean=0,sd=1), nrow=100, ncol=10)

# 2) calculate distance matrix using different metric
sMap <- sPipeline(data=data)
# 2a) using "pearson" metric
dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="pearson")
# 2b) using "cos" metric
# dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="cos")
# 2c) using "spearman" metric
# dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="spearman")
# 2d) using "kendall" metric
# dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="kendall")
# 2e) using "euclidean" metric
# dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="euclidean")
# 2f) using "manhattan" metric
# dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="manhattan")
# 2g) using "mi" metric
# dist <- sDistance(data=data, metric="mi")
