insertRows {berryFunctions}R Documentation

insert rows to data.frame

Description

Insert (multiple) rows to a data.frame, possibly coming from another data.frame, with value and row recycling

Usage

insertRows(df, r, new = NA, rcurrent = FALSE)

Arguments

df

data.frame

r

Row number (not name!), at which the new row is to be inserted. Can be a vector.

new

Vector with data to be inserted, is recycled. Alternatively, a data.frame, whose rows are put into the r locations. If it has more rows than length(r), the excess rows are ignored. DEFAULT: NA

rcurrent

Logical: should r specify the current rows of df, after which new is to be appended? If FALSE (the default for backwards compatibility), the rownumbers of the output (instead of the input) are r. I.e. new is inserted at, not after the rownumber. DEFAULT: FALSE

Value

data.frame

Note

Has not yet been tested with RWI (really weird input), so might not be absolutely foolproof

Examples


existingDF <- as.data.frame(matrix(1:20, nrow=5, ncol=4))
existingDF
insertRows(existingDF, 2) # default new=NA is recycled
insertRows(existingDF, 2, rcurrent=TRUE) # after current line, not at it
insertRows(existingDF, 2, 444:446)
insertRows(existingDF, 3, new=matrix(10:1,ncol=2)) # input warning
insertRows(existingDF, 1)
insertRows(existingDF, 5)
insertRows(existingDF, 6) # use addRows for this:
addRows(existingDF, n=1)
insertRows(existingDF, 9) # pads NA rows inbetween

# Works for multiple rows as well:
insertRows(existingDF, r=c(2,4,5), new=NA, rcurrent=TRUE)
insertRows(existingDF, r=c(2,4,5), new=NA)
insertRows(existingDF, r=c(2,4,4), new=NA)
insertRows(existingDF, r=c(2,4,4), new=NA, rcurrent=TRUE)

# Also works with a data.frame for insertion:
insertDF <- as.data.frame(matrix(101:112, nrow=3, ncol=4))
insertRows(existingDF, 3, new=insertDF) # excess rows in new are ignored
insertRows(existingDF, c(2,4,5), new=insertDF)
insertRows(existingDF, c(2,4:6), new=insertDF) # rows are recycled
