ds.list {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Constructs a list of objects in the server-side

Description

This is similar to the R function list.

Usage

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

Arguments

x

a character string specifying the names of the objects to coerce into a list.

newobj

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

If the objects to coerce into a list are for example vectors held in a matrix or a data frame the names of the elements in the list are the names of columns.

Server function called: listDS

Value

ds.list returns a list of objects for each study that is stored on the server-side.
