>rpart and tree, for example.
Yes, I know that recursive partitioning does some kind of splitting 
numerical variables. I looked into 'rpart.chm', but could not identify a 
function that I could call. What I would need is something like

discretize(num.var, some.factor, method="FayyadIrani, MDL, Kononenko, C45")

giving back a factor variable with selected intervals or splitting points 
as names. Can I extract something similar from one of the packages rpart or 

Thanks in advance, Hans Werner Borchers.
