In attempting to test for numeric vectors in a data frame, I tried:


and found that it returned FALSE for all vectors whether they were
numeric or not.  I tracked this to the fact that as.array() was
converting the data frame to character vectors, and thought I could
solve it by using array(), which preserved the mode of the columns. 
However, I then got an error from aperm():

Error in aperm(X, c(s.call, s.ans)) : aperm: invalid second argument,
must be a vector

even though the second argument tested as a vector.  This happened both
within the apply() function and calling aperm() separately, even if I
explicitly used a numeric vector for the second argument.  I then had a
look at the code for do_aperm(), but as I am unfamiliar with Scheme, had
to give up after trying to work out what CADR and SEXP were.
