# mlr_pipeops_histbin

##### PipeOpHistBin

Splits numeric features into equally spaced bins.
See `graphics::hist()`

for details.
Values that fall out of the training data range during prediction are
binned with the lowest / highest bin respectively.

##### Format

`R6Class`

object inheriting from `PipeOpTaskPreprocSimple`

/`PipeOpTaskPreproc`

/`PipeOp`

.

##### Construction

PipeOpHistBin$new(id = "histbin", param_vals = list())

`id`

::`character(1)`

Identifier of resulting object, default`"histbin"`

.`param_vals`

:: named`list`

List of hyperparameter settings, overwriting the hyperparameter settings that would otherwise be set during construction. Default`list()`

.

##### Input and Output Channels

Input and output channels are inherited from `PipeOpTaskPreproc`

.

The output is the input `Task`

with all affected numeric features replaced by their binned versions.

##### State

The `$state`

is a named `list`

with the `$state`

elements inherited from `PipeOpTaskPreproc`

, as well as:

`bins`

::`list`

List of intervals representing the bins for each numeric feature.

##### Parameters

The parameters are the parameters inherited from `PipeOpTaskPreproc`

, as well as:

`bins`

::`character(1)`

|`numeric`

|`function`

Either a`character(1)`

string naming an algorithm to compute the number of cells, a`numeric(1)`

giving the number of breaks for the histogram, a vector`numeric`

giving the breakpoints between the histogram cells, or a`function`

to compute the vector of breakpoints or to compute the number of cells. Default is algorithm`"Sturges"`

(see`grDevices::nclass.Sturges()`

). For details see`hist()`

.

##### Internals

Uses the `graphics::hist`

function.

##### Methods

Only methods inherited from `PipeOpTaskPreprocSimple`

/`PipeOpTaskPreproc`

/`PipeOp`
