Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples

Description

Search for an object with a given name and return it.

NOTE: This man page is for the get and mget S4 generic functions defined in the BiocGenerics package. See ?base::get for the default methods (defined in the base package). Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects (list-like or environment-like) not supported by the default methods.

Usage

get(x, pos=-1, envir=as.environment(pos), mode="any", inherits=TRUE)
mget(x, envir, mode="any", ifnotfound, inherits=FALSE)

Arguments

x

For get: A variable name (or, more generally speaking, a key), given as a single string.

For mget: A vector of variable names (or keys).

envir

Where to look for the key(s). Typically a list-like or environment-like object.

pos, mode, inherits, ifnotfound

See ?base::get for a description of these arguments.

Details

See ?base::get for details about the default methods.

Value
