SQL set operations


These are methods for the dplyr generics dplyr::intersect(), dplyr::union(), and dplyr::setdiff(). They are translated to INTERSECT, UNION, and EXCEPT respectively.


## S3 method for class 'tbl_lazy'
intersect(x, y, copy = FALSE, ..., all = FALSE)

## S3 method for class 'tbl_lazy'
union(x, y, copy = FALSE, ..., all = FALSE)

## S3 method for class 'tbl_lazy'
union_all(x, y, copy = FALSE, ...)

## S3 method for class 'tbl_lazy'
setdiff(x, y, copy = FALSE, ..., all = FALSE)


x, y

A pair of lazy data frames backed by database queries.


If x and y are not from the same data source, and copy is TRUE, then y will be copied into a temporary table in same database as x. ⁠*_join()⁠ will automatically run ANALYZE on the created table in the hope that this will make you queries as efficient as possible by giving more data to the query planner.

This allows you to join tables across srcs, but it's potentially expensive operation so you must opt into it.


Not currently used; provided for future extensions.


If TRUE, includes all matches in output, not just unique rows.
