[R] how to train ksvm with spectral kernel (kernlab) in caret?

Hello all,

I would like to use the train function from the caret package to train a svm with a spectral kernel from the kernlab package. Sadly a svm with spectral kernel is not among the many methods in caret...

using caret to train svmRadial:


TrainData<- iris[,1:4]
TrainClasses<- iris[,5]

fitControl$summaryFunction<- Rand
svmNew<- train(TrainData, TrainClasses,

		method = "svmRadial",
		preProcess = c("center", "scale"),
		metric = "cRand",
		tuneLength = 4)


here is an example on how to train the
ksvm with spectral kernel

# Load the data
y <- rlabels
x <- reuters

sk <- stringdot(type="spectrum", length=4, normalized=TRUE) svp <- ksvm(x,y,kernel=sk,scale=c(),cross=5) svp

Does anyone know how I can train the svm from above with using the caret package?

best regards
