as.vector: Coerce an object into a vector

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

Description

Attempt to coerce an object into a vector of the specified mode. If the mode is not specified, attempt to coerce to whichever vector mode is considered more appropriate for the class of the supplied object.

NOTE: This man page is for the as.vector S4 generic function defined in the BiocGenerics package. See ?base::as.vector for the default method (defined in the base package). Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects not supported by the default method.

Usage

1
as.vector(x, mode="any")

Arguments

x

The object to coerce.

mode

See ?base::as.vector for a description of this argument.

Value

A vector.

See ?base::as.vector for the value returned by the default method.

Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages should behave as consistently as possible with the default method.
