  • remove_zero() remove rows/columns that contain zeros.

  • replace_zero replaces zeros.

Usage

remove_zero(x, ...)

replace_zero(x, ...)

# S4 method for ANY
remove_zero(x, margin = 1, all = FALSE)

# S4 method for matrix
replace_zero(x, value)

Arguments

x

An object (should be a matrix or a data.frame).

...

Currently not used.

margin

A vector giving the subscripts which the function will be applied over (1 indicates rows, 2 indicates columns).

all

A logical scalar. If TRUE, only the rows/columns whose values all meet the condition defined by f are considered. If FALSE (the default), only rows/columns where at least one value validates the condition defined by f are considered.

value

A possible replacement value.

Examples

## Create a count data matrix
X <- matrix(sample(1:10, 25, TRUE), nrow = 5, ncol = 5)

## Add NA
k <- sample(1:25, 3, FALSE)
X[k] <- NA
X
#>      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5]
#> [1,]    7    2    3    2    4
#> [2,]   NA    8    8    5    9
#> [3,]    7   10    7   NA    3
#> [4,]    6    4   10    8    3
#> [5,]    8    5   NA    2    3

## Count missing values in rows
count(X, f = is.na, margin = 1)
#> [1] 0 1 1 0 1
## Count non-missing values in columns
count(X, f = is.na, margin = 2, negate = TRUE)
#> [1] 4 5 4 4 5

## Find row with NA
detect(X, f = is.na, margin = 1)
#> [1] FALSE  TRUE  TRUE FALSE  TRUE
## Find column without any NA
detect(X, f = is.na, margin = 2, negate = TRUE, all = TRUE)
#> [1] FALSE  TRUE FALSE FALSE  TRUE

## Keep row without any NA
keep(X, f = is.na, margin = 1, negate = TRUE, all = TRUE)
#>      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5]
#> [1,]    7    2    3    2    4
#> [2,]    6    4   10    8    3
## Keep row without any NA
keep(X, f = is.na, margin = 2, negate = TRUE, all = TRUE)
#>      [,1] [,2]
#> [1,]    2    4
#> [2,]    8    9
#> [3,]   10    3
#> [4,]    4    3
#> [5,]    5    3

## Remove row with any NA
discard(X, f = is.na, margin = 1, all = FALSE)
#>      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5]
#> [1,]    7    2    3    2    4
#> [2,]    6    4   10    8    3
## Remove column with any NA
discard(X, f = is.na, margin = 2, all = FALSE)
#>      [,1] [,2]
#> [1,]    2    4
#> [2,]    8    9
#> [3,]   10    3
#> [4,]    4    3
#> [5,]    5    3

## Replace NA with zeros
replace_NA(X, value = 0)
#>      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5]
#> [1,]    7    2    3    2    4
#> [2,]    0    8    8    5    9
#> [3,]    7   10    7    0    3
#> [4,]    6    4   10    8    3
#> [5,]    8    5    0    2    3
