Given a matrix or data.frame x, t returns the transpose of x.

data.frame

x

t

t(x)

a matrix or data frame, typically.

A matrix, with dim and dimnames constructed appropriately from those of x, and other attributes except names copied across.

dim

dimnames

This is a generic function for which methods can be written. The description here applies to the default and "data.frame" methods.

"data.frame"

A data frame is first coerced to a matrix: see as.matrix. When x is a vector, it is treated as a column, i.e., the result is a 1-row matrix.
