Flags(x, na.rm = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a numeric or integer vector, a logical vector or a factor (ordered and unordered)

strict

logical. If set to TRUE, the result will only be TRUE, if x contains exactly 2 levels. If set to FALSE the result will be TRUE for 1 and for 2 levels.

na.rm

logical, indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds. Defaults to FALSE.
