Details

Object x is coerced (if possible) to a data frame, then columns are converted to character using format.data.frame. The object is then viewed in a spreadsheet-like data viewer, a read-only version of data.entry. If there are row names on the data frame that are not 1:nrow, they are displayed in a separate first column called row.names. Objects with zero columns or zero rows are not accepted. The array of cells can be navigated by the cursor keys and Home, End, Page Up and Page Down (where supported by X11) as well as Enter and Tab. The array of cells can be navigated via the scrollbars and by the cursor keys, Home, End, Page Up and Page Down. The initial size of the data viewer window is taken from the default dimensions of a pager (see Rconsole), but adjusted downwards to show a whole number of rows and columns.

Value

Invisible NULL. The functions puts up a window and returns immediately: the window can be closed via its controls or menus.
