d {Deducer}R Documentation

wrapper for data.frame

Description

This function creates data frames, tightly coupled collections of variables which share many of the properties of matrices and of lists, used as the fundamental data structure by most of R's modeling software. It is a keystroke saving wrapper for the data.frame function. The only difference is that check.names and stringsAsFactors are FALSE by default.

Usage

d(..., row.names = NULL, check.rows = FALSE,
                check.names = FALSE,
                stringsAsFactors = FALSE)

Arguments

...

items

row.names

NULL or a single integer or character string specifying a column to be used as row names, or a character or integer vector giving the row names for the data frame.

check.rows

if TRUE then the rows are checked for consistency of length and names.

check.names

logical. If TRUE then the names of the variables in the data frame are checked to ensure that they are syntactically valid variable names and are not duplicated. If necessary they are adjusted (by make.names) so that they are.

stringsAsFactors

logical: should character vectors be converted to factors?
