CART is the registered trademark of a commercial package not written by
me and is nothing to do with R.

If you meant something other than CART, such as the rpart or tree R
packages, please do not approach individual authors of R packages for
technical support *and* Cc: r-help.  Package authors have not agreed
to provide free technical support, and especially not to someone who
gives no affiliation.  Enquiries to R-help are likely to produce a
response from the expert, but only if they are carefully formulated and
are not already answered in the documentation.
