Description

This method evaluates the Shannon entropy for a set of fingerprints and utilizes the bit.spectrum method to obtain the relative frequencies of individual bits

Usage

Arguments

fplist

A list structure with each element being an object of class fingerprint. These will can be constructed by hand or read from disk via fp.read.

All fingerprints in the list should be of the same length.
