\title{Kullback-Leibler divergence}
\description{
A function for calculating the Kullback-Leibler divergence between
two discrete probability distributions. The vectors specifying the
probability distributions must have the same length.
}
\usage{
kullback.leibler(p, q)
}

\arguments{
\item{p}{A \code{numeric} vector specifying the the first probability
distribution. It has to have the same length as \code{q}.}
\item{q}{A \code{numeric} vector specifying the the second probability
distribution.}
}

\value{
The function returns the Kullback-Leibler divergence between the two
specified descrete probability distributions.
}

\section{Warning }{
The function does not check whether the values in the vectors
specifying the discrete probability distributions sum up to one.

\examples{
## Define two discrete probability distributions with equal lengths.
p <- c(0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4)
q <- c(0.2, 0.5, 0.1, 0.2)

## Calculate the Kullback-Leibler divergence
