perturb {deal}  R Documentation 
Randomly insert/delete/turn arrows to obtain another network.
perturb(nw,data,prior,degree=size(nw),trylist=vector("list",size(nw)), nocalc=FALSE,timetrace=TRUE)
nw 
an object of class 
data 
a data frame used for learning the network, see

prior 
a list containing parameter priors, generated by

degree 
an integer, which gives the number of attempts to randomly insert/remove/turn an arrow. 
trylist 
a list used internally for reusing learning of nodes,

nocalc 
a logical. If

Given the initial network, a new network is constructed by randomly choosing an action: remove, turn, add. After the action is chosen, we choose randomly among all possibilities of that action. If there are no possibilites, the unchanged network is returned.
A list with two elements that may be accessed using
getnetwork
and gettrylist
