[R] fractal calculation using fdim

Well I must say that I am still struggling to understand exactly how fdim
works, and what form the first argument is to take. Presumably the function
produces something like 1-slope for a log log plot as a fractal dimension.
I guess it is really the makeline() function I don't understand from the
documentation. Is that how you got your data or are you using real data?
That said, I note in the help that the first argument X is to be a dataframe
not a matrix (mat??). Could that be giving you problems? Do you get
better results with as.data.frame(mat)?
