# Extract.linnet

##### Extract Subset of Linear Network

Extract a subset of a linear network.

##### Usage

```
# S3 method for linnet
[(x, i, …, snip=TRUE)
```

##### Arguments

- x
A linear network (object of class

`"linnet"`

).- i
Spatial window defining the subregion. An object of class

`"owin"`

.- snip
Logical. If

`TRUE`

(the default), segments of`x`

which cross the boundary of`i`

will be cut by the boundary. If`FALSE`

, these segments will be deleted.- …
Ignored.

##### Details

This function computes the intersection
between the linear network `x`

and the domain specified by `i`

.

This function is a method for the subset operator `"["`

for
linear networks (objects of class `"linnet"`

). It is provided
mainly for completeness.

The index `i`

should be a window.

The argument `snip`

specifies what to do with segments of `x`

which cross the boundary of `i`

.
If `snip=FALSE`

, such segments are simply deleted.
If `snip=TRUE`

(the default), such segments are cut into pieces by the
boundary of `i`

, and those pieces which lie inside the window
`i`

are included in the resulting network.

##### Value

Another linear network (object of class `"linnet"`

).

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
p <- par(mfrow=c(1,2), mar=0.2+c(0,0,1,0))
B <- owin(c(0.1,0.7),c(0.19,0.6))
plot(simplenet, main="x[w, snip=TRUE]")
plot(simplenet[B], add=TRUE, col="green", lwd=3)
plot(B, add=TRUE, border="red", lty=3)
plot(simplenet, main="x[w, snip=FALSE]")
plot(simplenet[B, snip=FALSE], add=TRUE, col="green", lwd=3)
plot(B, add=TRUE, border="red", lty=3)
par(p)
# }
```
