# Odd error with caret function rfe

library(caret)
set.seed(1)
x <- data.frame(runif(10),runif(10))
y <- rnorm(10)
rfeModel <- rfe(x,y,rfeControl = rfeControl(functions = lmFuncs))


returns:

Error in { : task 1 failed - "undefined columns selected"

While this code:

data(BloodBrain)

x <- scale(bbbDescr[,-nearZeroVar(bbbDescr)])
x <- x[, -findCorrelation(cor(x), .8)]
x <- as.data.frame(x)

lmProfile <- rfe(x, logBBB,rfeControl = rfeControl(functions = lmFuncs))


Works fine. What am I doing wrong in the 1st example? (I get the same error in R 2.14.0 and 2.13.2)

You have to specify the sizes argument ($\leq 2$ in your example). The default value in rfe is sizes=2^(2:4), but you only have two features.
?rfe
