## Examples involving "Inf" :
## 1)
x[6] <- Inf
(m2 <- rbind(x, y))
dist(m2, method = "binary") # warning, answer 0.5 = 2/4
## These all give "Inf":
stopifnot(Inf == dist(m2, method = "euclidean"),
Inf == dist(m2, method = "maximum"),
Inf == dist(m2, method = "manhattan"))
## "Inf" is same as very large number:
x1 <- x; x1[6] <- 1e100
stopifnot(dist(cbind(x, y), method = "canberra") ==
print(dist(cbind(x1, y), method = "canberra")))
## 2)
y[6] <- Inf #-> 6-th pair is excluded
dist(rbind(x, y), method = "binary" ) # warning; 0.5
dist(rbind(x, y), method = "canberra" ) # 3
dist(rbind(x, y), method = "maximum") # 1
dist(rbind(x, y), method = "manhattan") # 2.4
# }
