cit.dist( x,
meth="pearson",
use="pairwise.complete.obs",
diag=FALSE,
upper=FALSE,
p=2,
replaceNA=TRUE) 

Arguments

x

a numeric matrix, data frame or "dist" object.

meth

the distance measure to be used. This must be one of "pearson","spearman","euclidean", "maximum", "manhattan", "canberra", "binary" or "minkowski". Any unambiguous substring can be given.

use

method for computing covariance when NAs, choice between "pairwise.complete.obs", "all.obs" and "complete.obs" (cf cor function parameter)

diag

logical value indicating whether the diagonal of the distance matrix should be printed

upper

logical value indicating whether the upper triangle of the distance matrix should be printed

p

the power of the Minkowski distance.

replaceNA

a boolean indicating if NA value should be replace by

Value

required
