ds.rep {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Creates a repetitive sequence in the server-side

Description

Creates a repetitive sequence by repeating the specified scalar number, vector or list in each data source.

Usage

ds.rep(
  x1 = NULL,
  times = NA,
  length.out = NA,
  each = 1,
  source.x1 = "clientside",
  source.times = NULL,
  source.length.out = NULL,
  source.each = NULL,
  x1.includes.characters = FALSE,
  newobj = NULL,
  datasources = NULL
)

Arguments

x1

an scalar number, vector or list.

times

an integer from clientside or a serverside integer or vector.

length.out

a clientside integer or a serverside integer or vector.

each

a clientside or serverside integer.

source.x1

the source x1 argument. It can be "clientside" or "c" and serverside or "s".

source.times

see source.x1

source.length.out

see source.x1

source.each

see source.x1

x1.includes.characters

Boolean parameter which specifies if the x1 is a character.

newobj

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

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

All arguments that can denote in a clientside or a serverside (i.e. x1, times, length.out or each).

Server function called: repDS.

Value

ds.rep returns in the server-side a vector with the specified repetitive sequence. Also, two validity messages are returned to the client-side the name of newobj that has been created in each data source and if it is in a valid form.
