I am new to R and I'd like to use the randomForest package for my thesis (identifying important variables for more detailed analysis with other software). I have found extremely well written and helpful information on  the usage of R.

Unfortunately it seems to be very difficult to find similarly detailed tutorials for randomForest, and I just can't get it work with the information on

Can anybody give me a hint where to find a more detailed tutorial? I am especially interested in preparation of data to use with randomForest (how to structure the csv-file) and which information is mandatory for the package to work. Maybe someone has a simple copy-paste example to share and experiment?

Thank you for your attention,
