I am converting data.frame-based code to data.table, for performance
Is there a way to refer to columns using expressions in the "i"-part?
Here is an example:
a <- data.table(x=rep(LETTERS[1:10],each=2), y=1:20)
v <- "x"
For the j-part, I can access the column whose name is stored in v as
However, for the i-part I did not find a good way to achieve the same.
For a simple case, the following works
xx <- "B"
However, I can't see how this is easily expanded to more complex logical
