# subset.hyperframe

##### Subset of Hyperframe Satisfying A Condition

Given a hyperframe, return the subset specified by imposing a condition on each row, and optionally by choosing only some of the columns.

##### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'hyperframe':
subset(x, subset, select, \dots)
```

##### Arguments

- x
- A hyperframe pattern (object of class
`"hyperframe"`

. - subset
- Logical expression indicating which points are to be kept.
The expression may involve the names of columns of
`x`

and will be evaluated by`with.hyperframe`

. - select
- Expression indicating which columns of marks should be kept.
- ...
- Arguments passed to
`[.hyperframe`

such as`drop`

and`strip`

.

##### Details

This is a method for the generic function `subset`

.
It extracts the subset of rows of `x`

that satisfy the logical expression
`subset`

, and retains only the columns of `x`

that are
specified by the expression `select`

. The result is always a
hyperframe.

The argument `subset`

determines the subset of rows that
will be extracted. It should be a logical expression.
It may involve the names of columns of `x`

.
The default is to keep all points.

The argument `select`

determines which columns of `x`

will be retained.
It should be an expression involving the names of columns
(which will be interpreted as integers representing the positions of
these columns). For example if there are columns named
`A`

to `Z`

, then `select=D:F`

is a valid expression
and means that columns `D`

, `E`

and `F`

will be
retained. Similarly `select=-(A:C)`

is valid and means that columns
`A`

to `C`

will be deleted.
The default is to retain all columns.

Setting `subset=FALSE`

will remove all the rows.
Setting `select=FALSE`

will remove all the columns.
The result is always a hyperframe.

##### Value

- A hyperframe.
