Dear Baoqiang,

there is an example on the svm Help page on the use of 'class.weights'. 



I have such a two-class problem, one class is very large(~98% of total),
and the other is just 2%. According to manual of nnet, I need setup
"weights", so I intend to set 1 for class one, 49 for class 2. How do I
do that? Just weights=49? 
Meanwhile I'd like to try svm(e1071), again, how do I setup
"class.weights"? Thanks.
