Hello R-user!

I am running R 2.7.0 on a Power Book (Tiger). (I am still R and statistics beginner)

I try to find the most important variables to divide my dataset as given in a categorical variable using randomForest.

Is randomForest() able to deal with count data? Or is there no difference because only the ranks are used in the trees?

Thanks in advance

Birgit
