Merges two data frames

Merges two data frames

Usage
merge(x, y, ...)

# S4 method for SparkDataFrame,SparkDataFrame merge( x, y, by = intersect(names(x), names(y)), by.x = by, by.y = by, all = FALSE, all.x = all, all.y = all, sort = TRUE, suffixes = c("_x", "_y"), ... )

Arguments
x

the first data frame to be joined.

y

the second data frame to be joined.

...

additional argument(s) passed to the method.

by

a character vector specifying the join columns. If by is not specified, the common column names in x and y will be used. If by or both by.x and by.y are explicitly set to NULL or of length 0, the Cartesian Product of x and y will be returned.

by.x

a character vector specifying the joining columns for x.

by.y

a character vector specifying the joining columns for y.

all

a boolean value setting all.x and all.y if any of them are unset.

all.x

a boolean value indicating whether all the rows in x should be including in the join.

all.y

a boolean value indicating whether all the rows in y should be including in the join.

sort

a logical argument indicating whether the resulting columns should be sorted.

suffixes

a string vector of length 2 used to make colnames of x and y unique. The first element is appended to each colname of x. The second element is appended to each colname of y.

Details

If all.x and all.y are set to FALSE, a natural join will be returned. If all.x is set to TRUE and all.y is set to FALSE, a left outer join will be returned. If all.x is set to FALSE and all.y is set to TRUE, a right outer join will be returned. If all.x and all.y are set to TRUE, a full outer join will be returned.
