ds.c {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Combines values into a vector or list in the server-side

Description

Concatenates objects into one vector.

Usage

ds.c(x = NULL, newobj = NULL, datasources = NULL)

Arguments

x

a vector of character string providing the names of the objects to be combined.

newobj

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

To avoid combining the character names and not the vectors on the client-side, the names are coerced into a list and the server-side function loops through that list to concatenate the list's elements into a vector.

Server function called: cDS

Value

ds.c returns the vector of concatenating R objects which are written to the server-side.
