Description

mapply is a multivariate version of sapply. mapply applies FUN to the first elements of each ... argument, the second elements, the third elements, and so on. Arguments are recycled if necessary.

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

Usage

1
mapply(FUN, ..., MoreArgs=NULL, SIMPLIFY=TRUE, USE.NAMES=TRUE)

Arguments

FUN, MoreArgs, SIMPLIFY, USE.NAMES

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

...

One or more list-like or vector-like objects of strictly positive length, or all of zero length.

Value

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

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