Combinations {arrangements} R Documentation

Combinations iterator

Description

This function returns a Combinations iterator for iterating combinations of k items from n items. The iterator allows users to fetch the next combination(s) via the getnext() method.

Usage

Combinations

icombinations(x = NULL, k = NULL, n = NULL, v = NULL,
freq = NULL, replace = FALSE, skip = NULL)

Arguments

 x an integer or a vector, will be treated as n if integer; otherwise, will be treated as v. Should not be specified together with n and v. k an integer, the number of items drawn, defaults to n if freq is NULL else sum(freq) n an integer, the total number of items, its value may be implicitly deduced from length(v) or length(freq) v a vector to be drawn, defaults to 1:n. freq an integer vector of item repeat frequencies replace an logical to draw items with replacement skip the number of combinations skipped

Format

An object of class R6ClassGenerator of length 25.

Details

The Combinations class can be initialized by using the convenient wrapper icombinations or

Combinations\$new(n, k, v = NULL, freq = NULL, replace = FALSE)
getnext(d = 1L, layout = NULL, drop = NULL)
collect(layout = "row")
reset()
d

number of fetched arrangements

layout

if "row", "column" or "list" is specified, the returned value would be a "row-major" matrix, a "column-major" matrix or a list respectively

drop

vectorize a matrix or unlist a list

combinations for generating all combinations and ncombinations to calculate number of combinations

Examples

icomb <- icombinations(5, 2)
icomb\$getnext()
icomb\$getnext(2)
icomb\$getnext(layout = "column", drop = FALSE)
# collect remaining combinations
icomb\$collect()

library(foreach)
foreach(x = icombinations(5, 2), .combine=c) %do% {
sum(x)
}
