I am new user of 'R' (package e1071) and the first thing I did was reading the manuals. Although it was not clear for me how it works.
My problem is the following:
I have a data set of customers data of insurances with variables Class, Group Distance Claim. The file called 'xx.dat'. Using the manuals I think I had entered the data in the program. I used several function, but I never get an output.
In fact, I want to use the SVM with Vapnik's loss function for classification for the response variable 'Claim' and discrete explanatory variables Class, Group, Distance whitout modelling interaction terms manually. I want to use epsilon = 0.1, cast penalty constant (C) cost =1, and a Gaussian radial basis function kernel with y =1, i.e. k(x,x')= exp(-y||x-x'||).
I would like to aply here the classification rule to the whole data set and construct a 2-by-2 table of claim and predicted levels of Claim.

I hope you can help me further !!
Many thanks in advance !
