# vec_data

From vctrs v0.1.0
by Hadley Wickham

##### Extract underlying data

Extract the data underlying an S3 vector object, i.e. the underlying atomic vector or list. Currently, due to the underlying memory architecture of R, this creates a full copy of the underlying data.

##### Usage

`vec_data(x)`

##### Arguments

- x
A vector

##### Value

The data underlying `x`

, free from an attributes.

##### See Also

See `vec_restore()`

for the inverse operation: it restores
attributes given a bare vector and a prototype;
`vec_restore(vec_data(x), x)`

will always yield `x`

.
