##### Function to print a matrix with stacked cells

Prints a dataframe or matrix in stacked cells. Line break charcters in a matrix element will result in a line break in that cell, but tab characters are not supported.

Keywords
print, array
##### Usage
# S3 method for char.matrix
print(x, file = "", col.name.align = "cen", col.txt.align = "right",
cell.align = "cen", hsep = "|", vsep = "-", csep = "+", row.names = TRUE,
col.names = FALSE, append = FALSE,
top.border = TRUE, left.border = TRUE, …)
##### Arguments
x

a matrix or dataframe

file

name of file if file output is desired. If left empty, output will be to the screen

col.name.align

if column names are used, they can be aligned right, left or centre. Default "cen" results in names centred between the sides of the columns they name. If the width of the text in the columns is less than the width of the name, col.name.align will have no effect. Other options are "right" and "left".

col.txt.align

how character columns are aligned. Options are the same as for col.name.align with no effect when the width of the column is greater than its name.

cell.align

how numbers are displayed in columns

hsep

character string to use as horizontal separator, i.e. what separates columns

vsep

character string to use as vertical separator, i.e. what separates rows. Length cannot be more than one.

csep

character string to use where vertical and horizontal separators cross. If hsep is more than one character, csep will need to be the same length. There is no provision for multiple vertical separators

row.names

logical: are we printing the names of the rows?

col.names

logical: are we printing the names of the columns?

append

logical: if file is not "", are we appending to the file or overwriting?

top.border

logical: do we want a border along the top above the columns?

left.border

logical: do we want a border along the left of the first column?

unused

##### Details

If any column of x is a mixture of character and numeric, the distinction between character and numeric columns will be lost. This is especially so if the matrix is of a form where you would not want to print the column names, the column information being in the rows at the beginning of the matrix.

Row names, if not specified in the making of the matrix will simply be numbers. To prevent printing them, set row.names = FALSE.

##### Value

No value is returned. The matrix or dataframe will be printed to file or to the screen.

write, write.table
