abIseq {Matrix}R Documentation

Sequence Generation of "abIndex", Abstract Index Vectors

Description

Generation of abstract index vectors, i.e., objects of class "abIndex".

abIseq() is designed to work entirely like seq, but producing "abIndex" vectors.
abIseq1() is its basic building block, where abIseq1(n,m) corresponds to n:m.

c(x, ...) will return an "abIndex" vector, when x is one.

Usage

abIseq1(from = 1, to = 1)
abIseq (from = 1, to = 1, by = ((to - from)/(length.out - 1)),
        length.out = NULL, along.with = NULL)

## S3 method for class 'abIndex'
c(...)

Arguments

from, to

the starting and (maximal) end value of the sequence.

by

number: increment of the sequence.

length.out

desired length of the sequence. A non-negative number, which for seq and seq.int will be rounded up if fractional.

along.with

take the length from the length of this argument.

...

in general an arbitrary number of R objects; here, when the first is an "abIndex" vector, these arguments will be concatenated to a new "abIndex" object.

Value

An abstract index vector, i.e., object of class "abIndex".

Examples

stopifnot(identical(-3:20,
                    as(abIseq1(-3,20), "vector")))

try( ## (arithmetic) not yet implemented
abIseq(1, 50, by = 3)
)
