    Default Other detail in Xmean

    Hi,

    Is it possible for me using the Java API, apart from printing which cluster it belong to, to also print the distance to the cluster center. How to code it in Java. Thank You.

    There is a getDistanceF() method in XMeans that returns the distance function used internally. You can also get the cluster centres as an Instances object by calling getClusterCenters(). With these two you can compute the distance from an arbitrary instance to each of the cluster centers.

    Cheers,
    Mark.
