From what I gather it appears as if you want to split dm by all the
unique rows of idx? Is that right? If so, you can do the following:
x <- split(dm, do.call("paste", as.data.frame(idx))
This will split dm into a list with each element a subset of dm
corresponding to a unique row in idx. The length of the x will be the
number of unique rows in idx.
If this is not what you want, please provide an example and what you
expect to see.
