Still learning with R
September 20, 2006
In all my R coding so far I’ve been referencing individual lists within a dataframe (trans: column in a table) with the frame$list syntax. Not very generic, especially when I’m trying to write a generic, multi dimensional bucketing function. So somewhat belatedly I’ve discovered the frame[[list]] syntax, which allows me to parameterise the column references I pass to my bucketing code. Phew!
