mapply {base} | R Documentation |
mapply
is a multivariate version of sapply
.
mapply
applies FUN
to the first elements of each ...
argument, the second elements, the third elements, and so on.
Arguments are recycled if necessary.
mapply(FUN, ..., MoreArgs = NULL, SIMPLIFY = TRUE, USE.NAMES = TRUE)

arguments to vectorize over (vectors or lists of strictly positive length, or all of zero length). See also ‘Details’. |
MoreArgs |
a list of other arguments to |

logical or character string; attempt to reduce the
result to a vector, matrix or higher dimensional array; see

USE.NAMES |
logical; use the names of the first ... argument, or if that is an unnamed character vector, use that vector as the names. |
mapply
calls FUN
for the values of ...
(re-cycled to the length of the longest, unless any have length zero),
followed by the arguments given in MoreArgs
. The arguments in
the call will be named if ...

are named.
Arguments with classes in ...
will be accepted, and their
subsetting and length
methods will be used.
