[R] subsets problem

See if this illustration using the %in% operator within subset() is
helpful:
> df1 <- data.frame(x=1:10, y=sample(c("a","b","c"), 10,
replace=TRUE) )
> uniques <- list("a","b")
>
> Test1 <- subset(df1, y %in% uniques)
> Test1
x y
1 1 b
4 4 a
5 5 b
6 6 b
7 7 a
9 9 a
Next question of course is whether you were using the word "list" in
an r-specific fashion? Fortunately, I think %in% will also work with
vector input.
You might not want to make 50 Test<n>'s. That would be very much
against the spirit of R. Provide a simpler example involving 3 or 4
lists and someone might step up and solve it. Of course, I may have
given you a one step solution if you were thinking that uniques[[1]]
was a single number.
Might be best to name your dataframe something other than df which is
also valid function name for the density of the F distribution.
