> Subject: [R] How to duplicate rows in dataframe?
> Dear all:
> I have the following (simple?) problem:
> Consider a dataframe where the first column contains
> integers used as index, e.g.
> Now I have the following vector used to sort the dataframe:
> x <- c(13,24,32,46)
> Sorting the dataframe can be done by using order.
> However consider the following vector:
> x <- c(13,32,13,24,46,24,24)
> Now I want to get the dataframe in the order of the rows
> defined in x, i.e. the dataframe contains duplicate rows.
> One way to achieve this would be to use rbind in a for-loop.
> My question is:
> Is there an easier and - more important - faster way to
> obtain the dataframe as defined in x?
> Thank you in advance.
> Best regards
