Dear R-users,
I'm working with the Rpart package and trying to understand how the 
procedure select the best split in the case the method "class" and the 
splitting index "Gini" are used. In particular I'd like to have look to the 
source code that works out the best split for un unordered predictor.
Does anyone can suggest me which functions in the sources I should consider 
Any input would be highly appreciated.

Thank you
