cbindDS {dsBase}R Documentation

cbindDS called by ds.cbind

Description

serverside assign function that takes a sequence of vector, matrix or data-frame arguments and combines them by column to produce a data-frame.

Usage

cbindDS(x.names.transmit = NULL, colnames.transmit = NULL)

Arguments

x.names.transmit

This is a vector of character strings representing the names of the elemental components to be combined converted into a transmittable format. This argument is fully specified by the x argument of the client-side ds.cbind function.

colnames.transmit

This is a vector of character strings representing column names for the output object converted into a transmittable format.

Details

A sequence of vector, matrix or data-frame arguments is combined column by column to produce a data-frame which is written to the serverside. A critical requirement is that the length of all component variables, and the number of rows of the component data.frames or matrices must all be the same. The output data.frame will then have this same number of rows. For more details see help for ds.cbind and the native R function cbind.

Value

the object specified by the newobj argument of ds.cbind (or default name cbind.newobj) which is written to the serverside. The output object is of class data.frame.
