Returns a matrix of integers indicating their column number in a
matrix-like object, or a factor of column labels.
col(x, as.factor = FALSE)
a matrix-like object, that is one with a two-dimensional
a logical value indicating whether the value should
be returned as a factor of column labels (created if necessary)
rather than as numbers.
An integer (or factor) matrix with the same dimensions as x and whose
ij-th element is equal to j (or the j-th column label).
