## Hamming Distance for Vectors

### Description

The number of unequal elements of two vectors (which may be of unequal length), divided by the number of elements (of the larger vector).

### Usage

```
distanceNumericHamming(x, y)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
first vector |

`y` |
second vector |

### Value

numeric distance value

`d(x,y)`

, scaled to values between 0 and 1

### Examples

```
#e.g., used for distance between bit strings
x <- c(0,1,0,1,0)
y <- c(1,1,0,0,1)
distanceNumericHamming(x,y)
p <- replicate(10,sample(c(0,1),5,replace=TRUE),simplify=FALSE)
distanceMatrix(p,distanceNumericHamming)
```
