copy: Copy a simList object


Because a simList works with an environment to hold all objects, all objects within that slot are pass-by-reference. That means it is not possible to simply copy an object with an assignment operator: the two objects will share the same objects. As one simList object changes so will the other. when this is not the desired behaviour, use this function.


copy(sim, objects = TRUE)

# S4 method for simList,logical copy(sim, objects = TRUE)

# S4 method for simList,missing copy(sim)



A simList object.


Whether the objects contained within the simList environment should be copied. Default = TRUE, which may be slow.
