Given a numeric vector, these functions compute and return the few
smallest elements in it. The number of elements returned is specified as
either a definite number (
k) or as a proportion of the vector
p). The variant functions (
the same task, but return instead the position of such elements in the vector.

These functions are used internally in the determination of nearest neighbours; the user need not call any of these functions directly. Rather, the choice is specified via the arguments
Either the smallest values themselves or, for the which.* functions, their positions in the vector.
