Can somebody tell me how to do the equivalent of a pivot table in R ?
For example, if I have :
var1 var2 var3
a x 10
b y 20
a z 10
b z 20
a z 10
b z 20
I could have :
x y z
a 1 0 2
b 0 1 2
where entries in the table are counts of var3.
x y z
a 10 0 20
b 0 20 40
where entries are sums of var3.
I would expect it to be tapply(), but I can't see how it would be done.
Any suggestions please.
