Change breaks in a "classIntervals" object

Description

Because "classIntervals" objects of style "hclust" or "bclust" contain hierarchical classification trees in their "par" attribute, different numbers of classes can be chosen without repeating the initial classification. This function accesses the "par" attribute and modifies the "brks" member of the returned "classIntervals" object.

Usage

Arguments

clI
