#' Approximate Number of Clusters for a Text Matrix
#'
#' Can & Ozkarahan (1990) formula for approximating the number of clusters for
#' a text matrix: \eqn{(m * n)/t} where \eqn{m} and \eqn{n} are the dimensions
#' of the matrix and \eqn{t} is the length of the non-zero elements in matrix
#' \eqn{A}.
#'
#' @param x A matrix.
#' @param verbose logical.  If \code{TRUE} the k determination is printed.
#' @return Returns an integer.
#' @references Can, F., Ozkarahan, E. A. (1990). Concepts and effectiveness of
#' the cover-coefficient-based clustering methodology for text databases.
