match returns a vector of the positions of (first) matches of
its first argument in its second.
NOTE: This man page is for the matchS4 generic function
defined in the BiocGenerics package.
See ?base::match for the default method
(defined in the base package).
Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects
(typically vector-like) not supported by the default method.
Vector-like objects (typically of the same class, but not necessarily).
See ?base::match for a description of
Additional arguments, for use in specific methods.
The same as the default method, that is, an integer vector of the same
length as x giving the position in table of the first match
if there is a match, otherwise nomatch.See ?base::match for more details.Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages should
behave as consistently as possible with the default method.
