removeSparseTerms(x, sparse)

Arguments

x

A DocumentTermMatrix or a TermDocumentMatrix.

sparse

A numeric for the maximal allowed sparsity in the range from bigger zero to smaller one.

Value

A term-document matrix where those terms from x are removed which have at least a sparse percentage of empty (i.e., terms occurring 0 times in a document) elements. I.e., the resulting matrix contains only terms with a sparse factor of less than sparse.
