Create Export Tables

Function converting an R object to an xtable object, which can then be printed as a LaTeX or HTML table.

Usage
xtable(x,...)        display=NULL)
Arguments
x
An R object of class found among methods(xtable). See below on how to write additional method functions for xtable.
caption
Character vector of length 1 containing the table's caption or title. Set to NULL to suppress the caption. Default value is NULL.
label
Character vector of length 1 containing the LaTeX label or HTML anchor. Set to NULL to suppress the label. Default value is NULL.
align
Character vector of length equal to the number of columns of the resulting table indicating the alignment of the corresponding columns. Since the row names are printed in the first column, the length of align
vsep
Character vector with length equal to one or the number of columns in the resulting table + 2 (one for left and one for right margin). These may be any column separators acceptable to LaTeX. Default depends on the class o
digits
Numeric vector of length equal to the number of columns of the resulting table indicating the number of digits to display in the corresponding columns. Since the row names are printed in the first column, the length of
display
Character vector of length equal to the number of columns of the resulting table indicating the format for the corresponding columns. Since the row names are printed in the first column, the length of align
...
Additional arguments. (Currently ignored.)
Details

This function extracts tabular information from x and returns an object of class "xtable". The nature of the table generated depends on the class of x. For example, aov objects produce ANOVA tables while data.frame objects produce a table of the entire data.frame. One can optionally provide a caption (called a title in HTML) or label (called an anchor in HTML), as well as formatting specifications. Default values for align, vsep, digits, and display are class dependent.

The available method functions for xtable are given by methods(xtable). Users can extend the list of available classes by writing methods for the generic function xtable. These methods functions should have x as their first argument with additional arguments to specify caption, label, align, vsep, digits, and display. Optionally, other arguments may be present to specify how the object x should be manipulated. All method functions should return an object whose class if given by c("xtable","data.frame"). The resulting object can have attributes caption and label, but must have attributes align, digits, and display. It is strongly recommened that you set these attributes through the provided replacement functions as they perform validity checks.

Value

  • An object of class "xtable" which inherits the data.frame class and contains several additional attributes specifying the table formatting options.
