Usage
tables(mb = TRUE, order.col = "NAME", width = 80, env=parent.frame(), silent=FALSE)
Arguments
mb
TRUE adds size of the data.table in MB to the output (slow in older versions of R).
order.col
Quoted column name to sort the output by
width
Number of characters to truncate the COLS output
env
Usually tables() is executed at the prompt where parent.frame() returns .GlobalEnv. tables() may also be useful inside functions where parent.frame() is the local scope of the function, or set it to .GlobalEnv
silent
By default tables() is expected to be called at the prompt for its compact print output. silent=TRUE prints nothing. The data statistics are returned as a data.table, silently, whether silent is TRUE or FALSE
Value

  • A data.table containing the information printed.
