[R] printing hclust with k clusters

sorry if I was unclear.

I want a plot method for say k=10.  Maybe something like:

	hc <- hclust(dist(mydata))
	plot(cutree(hc, k=10))

but the cutree object doesn't give the right class for the plot method that
I want.

Hmm, I'm not sure I understand your question. What exactly do you mean
by ``print out for say 10 clusters in batch''?

I suspect what you want to do is not as simple as

	hc <- hclust(dist(mydata))
	cutree(hc, k=10)

but I cannot infer more from your mail ...
