subsetHelper {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Ensures that the requested subset is not larger than the original object

Description

Compares subset and original object sizes and eventually carries out subsetting.

Usage

subsetHelper(dts, data, rs = NULL, cs = NULL)

Arguments

dts

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.

data

a character string specifying the name of the data frame or the factor vector and the range of the subset.

rs

a vector of two integers specifying the indices of the rows de extract.

cs

a vector of two integers or one or more characters.

Details

This function is called by the function ds.subset to ensure that the requested subset is not larger than the original object.

This function is internal.

Server function called: dimDS

Value

subsetHelper returns a message or the class of the object if the object has the same class in all studies.
