Subset a spatial weights list

The function subsets a spatial weights list, retaining objects for which the subset argument vector is TRUE. At present it will only subset non-general weights lists (that is those created by nb2listw with glist=NULL).

Keywords
spatial
Usage
"subset"(x, subset, zero.policy = NULL, ...)
Arguments
x
an object of class listw
subset
logical expression
zero.policy
default NULL, use global option value; if FALSE stop with error for any empty neighbour sets, if TRUE permit the weights list to be formed with zero-length weights vectors - passed through to nb2listw
...
generic function pass-through
Value

The function returns an object of class listw with component style the same as the input object, component neighbours a list of integer vectors containing neighbour region number ids (compacted to run from 1:number of regions in subset), and component weights as the weights computed for neighbours using style.
