ds.assign {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Assigns an R object to a name in the server-side

Description

This function assigns a datashield object to a name, hence creating a new object.

Usage

ds.assign(toAssign = NULL, newobj = NULL, datasources = NULL)

Arguments

toAssign

a character string providing the object to assign.

newobj

a character string that provides the name for the output object that is stored on the data servers. Default assign.newobj.

datasources

a list of DSConnection-class objects obtained after login. If the datasources argument is not specified the default set of connections will be used: see datashield.connections_default.

Details

The new object is stored on the server-side.

ds.assign causes a remote assignment by using DSI::datashield.assign. The toAssign argument is checked at the server and assigned the variable called newobj on the server-side.

Value

ds.assign returns the R object assigned to a name that is written to the server-side.
