Returns the Euclidean distance between `x`

and `y`

which can be vectors
or matrices or data frames of any dimension (`x`

and `y`

should be of same dimension).

This function is equivalent to `Dist`

function in the `pcds`

package but is
different from the `dist`

function in the `stats`

package of the standard R
distribution.
`dist`

requires its argument to be a data matrix and `dist`

computes and returns the distance matrix computed
by using the specified distance measure to compute the distances between the rows of a data matrix
(\insertCiteS-Book:1998;textualnnspat),
while `euc.dist`

needs two arguments to find the distances between.
For two data matrices `A`

and `B`

,
`dist(rbind(as.vector(A),as.vector(B)))`

and `euc.dist(A,B)`

yield the same result.

Vectors, matrices or data frames (both should be of the same type). |
