Description Usage Arguments Details Value Slots See Also Examples

View source: R/amModelLib.R

Description

Creates an object of class amModelLib, either empty, or containing amModel and/or amData objects.

An S4 class to hold model and data, each with descriptive metadata.

Usage

1
2
amModelLib(models = list(), data = list(), info = list(),
  description = "")

Arguments

models

A list of objects of class amModel.

data

A list of objects of class amData.

info

Named list with descriptive metadata about the amModelLib object.

description

Text field describing the amModelLib object.

Details

amModelLib objects are useful for storing multiple models and datasets of a related theme, along with relevant metadata. Most extraction and manipulation functions will attempt to keep any relevant data with any model for which it is used. Multiple models may refer to a single dataset.

Value

An object of class amModelLib.

Slots

models

A named list of amModel objects. Models are added with insertAMModelLib and removed with rmModel.

data

A named list of amData objects. Data are added with insertAMModelLib and removed with rmData.

info

A named list of length 1 character strings that forms name:value metadata pairs describing the amModelLib, e.g. the project, the owner, etc. Name:value pairs may be retrieved or set using ammlInfo.

description

Length 1 character vector describing the amModelLib, intended to offer a summary of the amModelLib and quickly refresh the user to its contents and purpose without poring over the detailed metadata. The description may be retrieved or set with ammlDesc.
