## R-Distance for Permutations

### Description

R distance or unidirectional adjacency distance. Based on count of number of times that a two element sequence in x also occurs in y, in the same order.

### Usage

```
distancePermutationR(x, y)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
first permutation (integer vector) |

`y` |
second permutation (integer vector) |

### Value

numeric distance value

`d(x,y)`

, scaled to values between 0 and 1 (based on the maximum possible distance between two permutations)

### Examples

```
x <- 1:5
y <- c(1,2,3,5,4)
distancePermutationR(x,y)
p <- replicate(10,sample(1:5),simplify=FALSE)
distanceMatrix(p,distancePermutationR)
```
