Determines the location (i.e. index) of the (first) minimum or maximum value in an object.

S4 generic functions defined in the BiocGenerics package.
?base::which.min for the default methods (defined
in the base package).
Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects (typically
vector-, array-, or list-like) not supported by the default methods.
An object, typically with a vector-, array-, or list-like semantic.
Additional arguments, for use in specific methods.
?base::which.min for the value returned by the
Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages should behave as consistently as possible with the default methods.
The default methods (defined in the base package) only take a
single argument. 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
