Converts a Data Frame into a Binary Data Matrix

1 | ```
Dataframe2BinaryMatrix(dataf, cuttype = "Median", cut = NULL, BinFact = TRUE)
``` |

`dataf` |
data.frame to be converted |

`cuttype` |
Type of cut point for continuous variables. Must be "Median" or "Mean". Does not have any effect for factors |

`cut` |
Personalized cut value for continuous variables. |

`BinFact` |
Should I treat a factor with two levels as binary. This means that only a single dummy rather than two is used |

The function converts a data frame into a Binary Data Matrix (A matrix with entries either 0 or 1).

Factors with two levels are directly transformed into a column of 0/1 entries.

Factors with more than two levels are converted into a binary submatrix with
as many rows as `x`

and as many columns as levels or categories. (Indicator matrix)

Integer Variables are treated as factors

Continuous Variables are converted into binary variables using a cut point that can be the median, the mean or a value provided by the user.

A Binary Data Matrix.
