1) I am using the function ca() of the package multiv to make a
correspondance analysis of a matrix of categorical datas which are
numericaly coded. I would like to be sure that it is considered as a matrix
of categorical datas and not numerical. I cannot find any explicit mention
of that in the help file for this function
2) I would like to take the resulting matrix rproj to do a clustering.
I use hierclust() and partition() of the package multiv
when I use the method number 1 i get this error:
Error in hclust(a, method) : invalid clustering method
when I change the number of the method I get
Error in pmatch(x, table, duplicates.ok) :
argument is not of mode character
As for the partition() function, I also have some troubles. It seems I
should mention a vector of clustered centers for initiating the iterative
optimization process. But I do not know where to enter it.
I get the following message
Error in matrix(0, ng, m) : non-numeric matrix extent
Has anybody ever encountered those problems?
Thanks a lot
