Some time ago I wrote my own naive Bayes classifier as I was unsatisfied with
the speed of other implementations for larger data sets. My predict function
returns an 'accuracy' with every input item based on the standard calculation.
If you like I can send it to you as I am also interested in more test cases,
though I did some tests comparing it with results from 'e1071::naiveBayes'.
P. S.: What are you doing with "decision.values=TRUE, probability=TRUE"?
I can't find those in the documentation for naiveBayes. I assume you don't
get an error because the "..." catches all these unused parameters.
