Virtual Class "atomicVector" of Atomic Vectors

Share:

Description

The class "atomicVector" is a virtual class containing all atomic vector classes of base R, as also implicitly defined via is.atomic.

Objects from the Class

A virtual Class: No objects may be created from it.

Methods

In the Matrix package, the "atomicVector" is used in signatures where typically “old-style” "matrix" objects can be used and can be substituted by simple vectors.

Extends

The atomic classes "logical", "integer", "double", "numeric", "complex", "raw" and "character" are extended directly. Note that "numeric" already contains "integer" and "double", but we want all of them to be direct subclasses of "atomicVector".
