Regarding variable selection with Boruta



Hello Friends,
I used boruta () for variable selection in random forest algorithm..Can boruta () be used for other algorithms e.g linear, logistic, support vector machine , cluster analysis or there are different methods for different algorithms

The documentation says

by default, Boruta uses Random Forest

I don't see any other options to use different models.

If you want recursive feature elimination, caret has a wrapper for different models.
