[R] Comparing two matrices

Hi List,

I would like to compare two (confusion) matrices. I ended up with the  
ade4 mantel.rtest function as my best option. However it seems that my  
data is non-euclidean in nature (is.euclid gives a FALSE). I attached  
both matrices at the end of the document.

Are there any tools to transform these matrices into an euclidean form  
so I can use mantel.rtest with confidence.

Other suggestions are also welcome.

Kind regards,
Koen
