# col

0th

Percentile

##### Column Indexes

Returns a matrix of integers indicating their column number in a matrix-like object, or a factor of column labels.

Keywords
array
##### Usage
col(x, as.factor = FALSE)
.col(dim)
##### Arguments
x

a matrix-like object, that is one with a two-dimensional dim.

dim

a matrix dimension, i.e., integer vector of length two (with non-negative entries).

as.factor

a logical value indicating whether the value should be returned as a factor of column labels (created if necessary) rather than as numbers.

##### Value

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).
