In an object of type "Dataclass" data can be saved containing any number of runs in any dimension. All information about the data is stored in a unified way.
The saved Dataclass can be loaded with the usual load-command, the saved comment with the function cload.
Objects from the Class
Objects can be created by calls of the form
A Dataclass-object includes, aside from the actual data, a filename
and the number of runs and the size of the sample, which give the
number of rows and columns of the data matrix.
D <- Dataclass(Data = matrix(c(1,2,3,4,5,6),2), filename = "xyz.sav") # A new object of type "Dataclass" is created. savedata(D) # creates a file called "xyz.sav" where the information is saved and a # copy "xyz.sav.comment" without data Data(D) <- matrix(c(11,12,13,14,15,16),2) # changes the data of D cload("xyz.sav") # loads the object without data - it is called "D.comment" D.comment load("xyz.sav") # loads the original object "D" Data(D) # the original data: matrix(c(1,2,3,4,5,6),2) evaluate(object = D, estimator = mean) # returns the mean of each variable
