Using search term "knn classification" on rseek.org brought up many
relevant hits.

Among them,  the knn() function in package "class" seems relevant -- but

Your second question is about statistics and is largely off topic here. Per
the posting guide (linked below):

and of interest to someone on the list, it *may* elicit an informative
up-to-date answer. See also the Usenet groups sci.stat.consult (applied
statistics and consulting) and sci.stat.math (mathematical stat and

However, the rseek.org hits also may be helpful for that. Alternatively,
try stats.stackexchange.com for statistical questions for which you do not
receive a response here.
