# as_factor

From forcats v0.5.0
by Hadley Wickham

##### Convert input to a factor

Compared to base R, when `x`

is a character, this function creates
levels in the order in which they appear, which will be the same on every
platform. (Base R sorts in the current locale which can vary from place
to place.) When `x`

is numeric, the ordering is based on the numeric
value and consistent with base R.

##### Usage

`as_factor(x, ...)`# S3 method for factor
as_factor(x, ...)

# S3 method for character
as_factor(x, ...)

# S3 method for numeric
as_factor(x, ...)

# S3 method for logical
as_factor(x, ...)

##### Arguments

- x
Object to coerce to a factor.

- ...
Other arguments passed down to method.

##### Details

This is a generic function.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
# Character object
x <- c("a", "z", "g")
as_factor(x)
as.factor(x)
# Character object containing numbers
y <- c("1.1", "11", "2.2", "22")
as_factor(y)
as.factor(y)
# Numeric object
z <- as.numeric(y)
as_factor(z)
as.factor(z)
# }
```
