merge_RLum: General merge function for RLum S4 class objects


Function calls object-specific merge functions for RLum S4 class objects.


merge_RLum(objects, ...)



list of '>RLum (required): list of S4 object of class RLum


further arguments that one might want to pass to the specific merge function


Return is the same as input objects as provided in the list.

The function provides a generalised access point for merge specific '>RLum objects. Depending on the input object, the corresponding merge function will be selected. Allowed arguments can be found in the documentations of each merge function. Empty list elements (NULL) are automatically removed from the input list.

##Example based using data and from the calc_CentralDose() function

##load example data
data(ExampleData.DeValues, envir = environment())

##apply the central dose model 1st time
temp1 <- calc_CentralDose(ExampleData.DeValues$CA1)

##apply the central dose model 2nd time
temp2 <- calc_CentralDose(ExampleData.DeValues$CA1)

##merge the results and store them in a new object
temp.merged <- get_RLum(merge_RLum(objects = list(temp1, temp2)))
