in reply to Making sense of data: Clustering OR A coding challenge

While I haven't been able to turn up any docs for Algorithm::Cluster, I have found some information about the underlying C clustering library by Michiel Jan Laurens de Hoon, that may be useful to you:


The C Clustering Library
Making and Using DNA Microarrays - This is the manual for Cluster 3.0

HTH,

    General information (includning ppm installation information) about Algorithm::Cluster can be found here. Reasonably good documentation can be found in this pdf document. Unfortunately, as the OP noted, it does seem to be aimed at 2 variable problems.

    Thanks, that seems to agree with what I gleaned from reading the source. Although it does imply that weight and mask are optional. Alas, it provides no insight into 1-D klustering (I get no errors nor values back from kcluster).
