\title{ RReliefF filter }
\description{
  The algorithm finds weights of continous and discrete attributes basing on a distance between instances.
}
\usage{
relief(formula, data, neighbours.count = 5, sample.size = 10)
}
\arguments{
  \item{formula}{ a symbolic description of a model }
  \item{data}{ data to process }
  \item{neighbours.count}{ number of neighbours to find for every sampled instance }
  \item{sample.size}{ number of instances to sample }
}
\details{
  The algorithm samples instances and finds their nearest hits and misses. Considering that result, it evaluates weights of attributes.
