Details

hash returns a hash object. Key-value pairs may be specified via the ... argument as explicity arguments keys and values, as named key-value pairs, as a named vector or as implicit key, value vectors. See examples below for each type.

Keys must be a valid R name, must be a character vector and must not be the empty string, "". Values are restricted to any valid R objects.

See .set for further details and how key-value vectors of unequal length are interpretted.

Hashes may be accessed via the standard R accessors [, [[ and \$. See hash-accessors for details.

is.hash returns a boolean value indicating if the argument is a hash object.

as.list.hash coerces the hash to a list.
