Description

Attempt to coerce an object into a vector of the specified mode. If the mode is not specified, attempt to coerce to whichever vector mode is considered more appropriate for the class of the supplied object.

NOTE: This man page is for the as.vector S4 generic function defined in the BiocGenerics package. See ?base::as.vector for the default method (defined in the base package). Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects not supported by the default method.

Usage

as.vector(x, mode="any")

Arguments

x
The object to coerce.
mode
See ?base::as.vector for a description of this argument.

Value

A vector.See ?base::as.vector for the value returned by the default method.Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages should behave as consistently as possible with the default method.
