Create a Data Frame from All Combinations of Factor Variables
Create a data frame from all combinations of the supplied vectors or factors. See the description of the return value for precise details of the way this is done.
expand.grid(..., KEEP.OUT.ATTRS = TRUE, stringsAsFactors = TRUE)
- vectors, factors or a list containing these.
- a logical indicating the
"out.attrs"attribute (see below) should be computed and returned.
- logical specifying if character vectors are converted to factors.
A data frame containing one row for each combination of the supplied
factors. The first factors vary fastest. The columns are labelled by
the factors if these are supplied as named arguments or named
components of a list. The row names are automatic.Attribute "out.attrs" is a list which gives the dimension and
dimnames for use by predict methods.
Conversion to a factor is done with levels in the order they occur in the character vectors (and not alphabetically, as is most common when converting to factors).
