with.hyperframe: Evaluate an Expression in Each Row of a Hyperframe


An expression, involving the names of columns in a hyperframe, is evaluated separately for each row of the hyperframe.


# S3 method for hyperframe
with(data, expr, ...,
                         simplify = TRUE,
                         ee = NULL, enclos=NULL)



A hyperframe (object of class "hyperframe") containing data.


An R language expression to be evaluated.



Logical. If TRUE, the return value will be simplified to a vector whenever possible.


Alternative form of expr, as an object of class "expression".


An environment in which to search for objects that are not found in the hyperframe. Defaults to parent.frame().


Normally a list of length \(n\) (where \(n\) is the number of rows) containing the results of evaluating the expression for each row. If simplify=TRUE and each result is a single atomic value, then the result is a vector or factor containing the same values.


This function evaluates the expression expr in each row of the hyperframe data. It is a method for the generic function with.

The argument expr should be an R language expression in which each variable name is either the name of a column in the hyperframe data, or the name of an object in the parent frame (the environment in which with was called.) The argument ee can be used as an alternative to expr and should be an expression object (of class "expression").

For each row of data, the expression will be evaluated so that variables which are column names of data are interpreted as the entries for those columns in the current row.

For example, if a hyperframe h has columns called A and B, then with(h, A != B) inspects each row of data in turn, tests whether the entries in columns A and B are equal, and returns the \(n\) logical values.
