BiocGenerics (version 0.18.0)

Extremes: Maxima and minima

Description

pmax, pmin, pmax.int and pmin.int return the parallel maxima and minima of the input values.

NOTE: This man page is for the pmax, pmin, pmax.int and pmin.int S4 generic functions defined in the BiocGenerics package. See ?base::pmax for the default methods (defined in the base package). Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects (typically vector-like or matrix-like) not supported by the default methods.

Usage

pmax(..., na.rm=FALSE) pmin(..., na.rm=FALSE) pmax.int(..., na.rm=FALSE) pmin.int(..., na.rm=FALSE)

Arguments

...
One or more vector-like or matrix-like objects.
na.rm
See ?base::pmax for a description of this argument.

Value

See ?base::pmax for the value returned by the default methods.Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages will typically return an object of the same class as the input objects.
