Hello.

Is it possible to choose the distance in the kmeans algorithm?

I have m vectors of n components and I want to cluster them using kmeans algorithm but I want to use the Mahalanobis distance or another distance.

How can I do it in R?
If I use kmeans, I have no option to choose the distance.

Thanks in advance,

Arnau.
