Hi All,
I have a data frame where nearly 10K columns of data, where most of them
have standard deviation( of all rows) as zero.
I want to exclude all the columns from the data frame and proceed to further
processing.
I tried like blow.
*data <- read.csv("data.CSV", header=T)
for(i in 2:ncol(data))
if(sd(data[,i])==0){
df[,i] <-NULL
}
*
where I have the data columns from 2:ncol, but getting the error "Error in
df[, i] <- NULL : object of type 'closure' is not subsettable"
Can any one suggest the right method to accomplish this.
