Declaration:procedure MeanDistanceKNN (InMat: TMatrix; kn: integer; var DistVec: TVector);

The procedure MeanDistanceKNN calculates the mean distance of the kn nearest neighbors of each sample in the matrix InMat. The rows of the matrix InMat are seen as objects (samples), the columns are regarded as variables (measurements) which define the data space.

The results are stored in the vector DistVec. The user has to assure that the vector DistVec is large enough to accept the distances of all objects (DistVec has to have at least InMat.NrOfRows rows). If the vector DistVec is too small the result will be truncated accordingly.
