Hi all,

I'm just a beginner in R. I have a pretty basic doubt. This is the actual
quote I wrote
> x<-factor(c("M","F","M","T","M","T"))
> levels(x)=c("M","F","T")
> x
[1] F M F T F T
Levels: M F T
> table(x)
1 3 2

Expectation: I just wanted to change my baselevel from F to M. with the
number of M and F remaining constant

What exactly happened: The values of F and M also get exchanged along with
the change of base level from F to M
