Export RLum-objects to CSV

This function exports '>RLum-objects to CSV-files using the R function utils::write.table. All '>RLum-objects are supported, but the export is lossy, i.e. the pure numerical values are exported only. Information that cannot be coerced to a data.frame or a matrix are discarded as well as metadata.

Usage
write_RLum2CSV(object, path = NULL, prefix = "", export = TRUE, ...)
Arguments
object

'>RLum or a list of RLum objects (required): objects to be written

path

character (optional): character string naming folder for the output to be written. If nothing is provided path will be set to the working directory. Note: this argument is ignored if the the argument export is set to FALSE.

prefix

character (with default): optional prefix to name the files. This prefix is valid for all written files

export

logical (with default): enable or disable the file export. If set to FALSE nothing is written to the file connection, but a list comprising objects of type data.frame and matrix is returned instead

...

further arguments that will be passed to the function utils::write.table. All arguments except the argument file are supported

Details

However, in combination with the implemented import functions, nearly every supported import data format can be exported to CSV-files, this gives a great deal of freedom in terms of compatibility with other tools.

Input is a list of objects

If the input is a list of objects all explicit function arguments can be provided as list.

Value

The function returns either a CSV-file (or many of them) or for the option export == FALSE a list comprising objects of type data.frame and matrix
