rBinomDS {dsBase} | R Documentation |
primary serverside assign function called by ds.rBinom
rBinomDS(n, size = 1, prob = 0.5)
n |
length of the pseudorandom number vector to be generated as specified by the argument <samp.size> in the function ds.rBinom |
size |
a scalar that must be a positive integer. Value set directly by <size> argument of ds.rBinom - for details see help for ds.rBinom. May be a scalar or a vector allowing the size to vary from observation to observation. |
prob |
a numeric scalar in range 0 > prob > 1 which specifies the probability of a positive response. Value set directly by <prob> argument of ds.rBinom - for details see help for ds.rBinom May be a scalar or a vector allowing the size to vary from observation to observation. |
Generates the vector of pseudorandom numbers from a binomial distribution in each data source as specified by the arguments of ds.rBinom. This serverside function is effectively the same as the function rbinom() in native R and its arguments are the same.
Writes the pseudorandom number vector with the characteristics specified in the function call as a new serverside vector on the data source on which it has been called. Also returns key information to the clientside: the random seed as specified by you in each source + (if requested) the full 626 length random seed vector this generated in each source (see info for the argument <return.full.seed.as.set>). It also returns a vector reporting the length of the pseudorandom vector created in each source.
