labels<-: "label" assignment operator

Description

"label" assignment operator for vectors, dendrogram, and hclust classes.

Usage

labels(object, ...) <- value

# S3 method for default labels(object, ...) <- value

# S3 method for dendrogram labels(object, ...) <- value

# S3 method for hclust labels(object, order = TRUE, ...)

# S3 method for hclust labels(object, ...) <- value

# S3 method for phylo labels(object, ...)

# S3 method for phylo labels(object, ...) <- value

Arguments

object

a variable name (possibly quoted) who's label are to be updated

...

parameters passed (not currently in use)

value

a value to be assigned to object's label

order

default is FALSE. Only relevant for extracting labels from an hclust object (with labels.hclust). Setting order=TRUE will return labels in their order in the dendrogram, instead of the riginal labels order retained from object$labels - which ususally corresponding to the row or column names of the dist object provided to the hclust function.

Value

The updated object

Examples

Run this code
# NOT RUN {
x <- 1:3
labels(x)
labels(x) <- letters[1:3]
labels(x) # [1] "a" "b" "c"
x
# a b c
# 1 2 3


# get("labels<-")

################
# Example for using the assignment with dendrogram and hclust objects:
hc <- hclust(dist(USArrests[1:3, ]), "ave")
dend <- as.dendrogram(hc)

labels(hc) # "Arizona" "Alabama" "Alaska"
labels(hc) <- letters[1:3]
labels(hc) # "a" "b" "c"
labels(dend) # "Arizona" "Alabama" "Alaska"
labels(dend) <- letters[1:3]
labels(dend) # "a" "b" "c"
suppressWarnings(labels(dend) <- LETTERS[1:2]) # will produce a warning
labels(dend) # "A" "B" "A"
labels(dend) <- LETTERS[4:6] # will replace the labels correctly
# (the fact the tree had duplicate labels will not cause a problem)
labels(dend) # "D" "E" "F"
# }
