PURPOSE ^

KAPPA estimates Cohen's kappa coefficient

SYNOPSIS ^

function [kap,se,H,z,p0,SA,R]=kappa(d,c,arg3,w);

DESCRIPTION ^

 KAPPA estimates Cohen's kappa coefficient
   and related statistics 

 [...] = kappa(d1,d2);
    NaN's are handled as missing values and are ignored
 [...] = kappa(d1,d2,'notIgnoreNAN');
    NaN's are handled as just another Label.
 [kap,sd,H,z,ACC,sACC,MI] = kappa(...);
 X = kappa(...);

 d1    data of scorer 1 
 d2    data of scorer 2 

 kap    Cohen's kappa coefficient point
 se    standard error of the kappa estimate
 H    Concordance matrix, i.e. confusion matrix
 z    z-score
 ACC    overall agreement (accuracy) 
 sACC    specific accuracy 
 MI     Mutual information or transfer information (in [bits])
 X     is a struct containing all the fields above
