asInteger: Convert an argument to an integer

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

Description

asInteger is intended to be used for vectors while asInt is a specialization for scalar integers and asCount for scalar non-negative integers. Convertible are (a) atomic vectors with all elements NA and (b) double vectors with all elements being within tol range of an integer.

Note that these functions may be deprecated in the future. Instead, it is advised to use assertCount, assertInt or assertIntegerish with argument coerce set to TRUE instead.

asInteger(x, tol = sqrt(.Machine$double.eps), lower = -Inf,
  upper = Inf, any.missing = TRUE, all.missing = TRUE, len = NULL,
  min.len = NULL, max.len = NULL, unique = FALSE, sorted = FALSE,
  names = NULL, .var.name = vname(x))

asCount(x, na.ok = FALSE, positive = FALSE,
  tol = sqrt(.Machine$double.eps), .var.name = vname(x))

asInt(x, na.ok = FALSE, lower = -Inf, upper = Inf,
  tol = sqrt(.Machine$double.eps), .var.name = vname(x))

Arguments

x

[any]
Object to convert.

tol

[double(1)]
Numerical tolerance used to check whether a double or complex can be converted. Default is sqrt(.Machine$double.eps).

lower

[numeric(1)]
Lower value all elements of x must be greater than or equal to.

upper

[numeric(1)]
Upper value all elements of x must be lower than or equal to.

any.missing

[logical(1)]
Are vectors with missing values allowed? Default is TRUE.

all.missing

[logical(1)]
Are vectors with only missing values allowed? Default is TRUE.

len

[integer(1)]
Exact expected length of x.

min.len

[integer(1)]
Minimal length of x.

max.len

[integer(1)]
Maximal length of x.

unique

[logical(1)]
Must all values be unique? Default is FALSE.

sorted

[logical(1)]
Elements must be sorted in ascending order. Missing values are ignored.

names

[character(1)]
Check for names. See checkNamed for possible values. Default is “any” which performs no check at all. Note that you can use checkSubset to check for a specific set of names.

.var.name

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in error messages. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

na.ok

[logical(1)]
Are missing values allowed? Default is FALSE.

positive

[logical(1)]
Must x be positive (>= 1)? Default is FALSE.

Details

This function does not distinguish between NA, NA_integer_, NA_real_, NA_complex_ NA_character_ and NaN.

Value

Converted x.
