This operator can be used to discretize a numeric attribute manually. It is very similar to the operator TimeIntervalManualDiscretization. The looped parameters IntervalStart, IntervalEnd, StartIncExc, EndIncExc, and MapTo. again specify a mapping to be performed. If an input value does not belong to any interval, it is mapped to the value DefaultValue. TheTargetAttribute needs to be of type ordinal.
