order
returns a permutation which rearranges its first argument
into ascending or descending order, breaking ties by further
arguments. NOTE: This man page is for the order
S4 generic function
defined in the BiocGenerics package.
See ?base::order
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.
order(..., na.last=TRUE, decreasing=FALSE, method=c("shell", "radix"))
?base::order
for a description of
these arguments.
?base::order
) returns
an integer vector of length N where N is the common length of the
input objects. This integer vector represents a permutation of N
elements and can be used to rearrange the first argument in
...
into ascending or descending order (by subsetting it).Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages should also
return an integer vector representing a permutation of N elements.
base::order
for the default order
method.
