Class "dendrogram" provides general functions for handling tree-like structures in R. It is intended as a replacement for similar functions in hierarchical clustering and classification/regression trees, such that all of these can use the same engine for plotting or cutting trees.
However, many basic features are still missing from the dendrogram class. This package aims at filling in some gaps.
Extending R core dendrogram functions.
To install the stable version on CRAN:
To install the GitHub version:
