##### Hamming Distances of Vectors

If both `x`

and
`y`

are vectors, `hamming.distance`

returns the Hamming
distance (number of different elements) between this two vectors. If
`x`

is a matrix, the Hamming distances between the rows of `x`

are computed and `y`

is ignored.

- Keywords
- multivariate

##### Usage

`hamming.distance(x, y)`

##### Arguments

- x
a vector or matrix.

- y
an optional vector.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
x <- c(1, 0, 0)
y <- c(1, 0, 1)
hamming.distance(x, y)
z <- rbind(x,y)
rownames(z) <- c("Fred", "Tom")
hamming.distance(z)
hamming.distance(1:3, 3:1)
# }
```
