# hyperframe

##### Hyper Data Frame

Create a hyperframe: a two-dimensional array in which each column consists of values of the same atomic type (like the columns of a data frame) or objects of the same class.

##### Usage

```
hyperframe(...,
row.names=NULL, check.rows=FALSE, check.names=TRUE,
stringsAsFactors=default.stringsAsFactors())
```

##### Arguments

- ...
- Arguments of the form
`value`

or`tag=value`

. Each`value`

is either an atomic vector, or a list of objects of the same class, or a single atomic value, or a single object. Each`value`

will become a - row.names,check.rows,check.names,stringsAsFactors
- Arguments passed to
`data.frame`

controlling the names of the rows, whether to check that rows are consistent, whether to check validity of the column names, and whether to convert character co

##### Details

A hyperframe is like a data frame, except that its entries can be objects of any kind.

A hyperframe is a two-dimensional array in which each column consists of values of one atomic type (as in a data frame) or consists of objects of one class.

The arguments `...`

are any number of arguments of
the form `value`

or `tag=value`

. Each `value`

will
become a column of the array. The `tag`

determines the name
of the column.

Each `value`

can be either

- an atomic vector or factor (i.e. numeric vector, integer vector, character vector, logical vector, complex vector or factor)
- a list of objects which are all of the same class
- one atomic value, which will be replicated to make an atomic vector or factor
- one object, which will be replicated to make a list of objects.

All columns (vectors, factors and lists) must be of the same length, if their length is greater than 1.

##### Value

- An object of class
`"hyperframe"`

.

##### Methods for Hyperframes

There are methods for
`print`

, `plot`

, `summary`

, `with`

, `[`

, `$`

,
`$<-`

, `names`

, `as.data.frame`

`as.list`

,
`cbind`

and `rbind`

for the class of hyperframes. There is also
`is.hyperframe`

and `as.hyperframe`

.

##### Examples

```
# equivalent to a data frame
hyperframe(X=1:10, Y=3)
# list of functions
hyperframe(f=list(sin, cos, tan))
# table of functions and matching expressions
hyperframe(f=list(sin, cos, tan),
e=list(expression(sin(x)), expression(cos(x)), expression(tan(x))))
hyperframe(X=1:10, Y=letters[1:10], Z=factor(letters[1:10]),
stringsAsFactors=FALSE)
lambda <- runif(10, min=50, max=100)
X <- lapply(as.list(lambda), function(x) { rpoispp(x) })
hyperframe(lambda=lambda, X=X)
```
