If both `x`

and
`y`

are vectors, `hamming.distance`

returns the Hamming
distance (number of different elements) between this two vectors. If
`x`

is a matrix, the Hamming distances between the rows of `x`

are computed and `y`

is ignored.

1 | ```
hamming.distance(x, y)
``` |

`x` |
a vector or matrix. |

`y` |
an optional vector. |

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 | ```
x <- c(1, 0, 0)
y <- c(1, 0, 1)
hamming.distance(x, y)
z <- rbind(x,y)
rownames(z) <- c("Fred", "Tom")
hamming.distance(z)
hamming.distance(1:3, 3:1)
``` |

```
[1] 1
Fred Tom
Fred 0 1
Tom 1 0
[1] 2
