Collapse separate simulation files into a single result

Description

This function grabs all .rds files in the working directory and aggregates them into a single data.frame object or combines all the saved results directories and combines them into one. This is generally useful when results are run piecewise on one node or run independently across different nodes/computers which are not on the same network.

Usage

1
2
aggregate_simulations(files = NULL, dirs = NULL,
  results_dirname = "SimDesign_aggregate_results")

Arguments

files

a character vector containing the names of the simulation files. If NULL, all files in the working directory ending in .rds will be used

dirs

a character vector containing the names of the save_results directories to be aggregated. A new folder will be created and placed in the results_dirname output folder

results_dirname

the new directory to place the aggregated results files

Value

if files is used the function returns a data.frame with the (weighted) average of the simulation results. Otherwise, if dirs is used, the function returns NULL
