Removes rows/columns in an array-like object using a predicate function.

Usage

discard(x, f, ...)

discard_cols(x, f, ...)

discard_rows(x, f, ...)

# S4 method for ANY,`function`
discard(x, f, margin = 1, negate = FALSE, all = FALSE)

# S4 method for ANY,`function`
discard_rows(x, f, negate = FALSE, all = FALSE)

# S4 method for ANY,`function`
discard_cols(x, f, negate = FALSE, all = FALSE)

Arguments

x

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

f

A predicate function.

...

Currently not used.

margin

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

negate

A logical scalar: should the negation of f be used instead of f?

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.

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,]    8   10   NA    4    4
#> [2,]   10    2    9   NA    2
#> [3,]    6   NA    1    5    5
#> [4,]   10    6    3    3    8
#> [5,]    4    1    8    7    4

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

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

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

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