## Is Object Numeric and Whole Numbers

### Description

Checks whether an object is numeric and if so, are all the elements whole numbers, to a given tolerance.

### Usage

``````is.wholenumber(x, tolerance = .Machine\$double.eps^0.5)
``````

### Arguments

 `x` The object to be tested. `tolerance` Numeric `\ge 0`. Absolute differences greater than `tolerance` are treated as real differences.

### Details

The object `x` is first tested to see if it is numeric. If not the function returns `'FALSE'`. Then if all the elements of `x` are whole numbers to within the tolerance given by `tolerance` the function returns `'TRUE'`. If not it returns `'FALSE'`.

### Value

Either `'TRUE'` or `'FALSE'` depending on the result of the test.

### Examples

``````is.wholenumber(-3:5)                           # TRUE
is.wholenumber(c(0,0.1,1.3,5))                 # FALSE
is.wholenumber(-3:5 + .Machine\$double.eps)     # TRUE
is.wholenumber(-3:5 + .Machine\$double.eps^0.5) # FALSE
is.wholenumber(c(2L,3L))                       # TRUE
is.wholenumber(c("2L","3L"))                   # FALSE
is.wholenumber(0i ^ (-3:3))                    # FALSE
is.wholenumber(matrix(1:6, nrow = 3))          # TRUE
is.wholenumber(list(-1:3,2:6))                 # FALSE
is.numeric(list(-1:3,2:6))                     # FALSE
is.wholenumber(unlist(list(-1:3,2:6)))         # TRUE
