ds.log {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Computes logarithms in the server-side

Description

Computes the logarithms for a specified numeric vector. This function is similar to the R log function. by default natural logarithms.

Usage

ds.log(x = NULL, base = exp(1), newobj = NULL, datasources = NULL)

Arguments

x

a character string providing the name of a numerical vector.

base

a positive number, the base for which logarithms are computed. Default exp(1).

newobj

a character string that provides the name for the output variable that is stored on the server-side. Default log.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

Server function called: log

Value

ds.log returns a vector for each study of the transformed values for the numeric vector specified in the argument x. The created vectors are stored in the server-side.
