These functions all return a vector of subscripts into their input.
NOTE: This man page is for the
which.min S4 generic functions defined in the
BiocGenerics package. See
?base::which.min for the default methods (defined
in the base package). Bioconductor packages can define specific
methods for objects (typically vector-like) not supported by the

?base::which.min for the value returned by the
Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages will typically return an object of the same class as the input objects.
The default methods (defined in the base package) only take a
fixed set of arguments. We've added the
... argument to the
generic functions defined in the BiocGenerics package so they
can be called with an arbitrary number of effective arguments. This
typically allows methods to add extra arguments for
controlling/altering the behavior of the operation. Like for example
