## Count the number of point-pairs in distance bins

### Description

Count the number of point-pairs in equally spaced distances bins. Code works in any dimension. If only one point set is provided, the distances of this point set with itself are used (counting each pairs only once, i.e. only ij, not ji).

### Usage

```
paircount(x, y = NULL, dr, rmax, cpp = TRUE)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
n-element vector or n-by-d matrix of d-dimensional positions of data points |

`y` |
optional m-element vector or m-by-d matrix of d-dimensional positions of a second point set |

`dr` |
distance bin size |

`rmax` |
maximum distance to be considered |

`cpp` |
logical flag; if set to TRUE (default) a fast implementation in C++ is used, otherwise the counting is performed less efficiently in R. |

### Value

Returns a data frame of two column vectors:

`r` |
mid-points of the distance bins. |

`n` |
number of pairs in the distance bin. |
