wide2long: Convert a key object from wide to long format

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/variableKey.R

Description

This is not flexible, assumes columns are named in our canonical style, which means the columns are named c("name_old", "name_new", "class_old", "class_new", "value_old", "value_new").

Usage

2
wide2long(key, sep = c(character = "\\|", logical = "\\|", integer =
  "\\|", factor = "\\|", ordered = "[\\|<]", numeric = "\\|"))

Arguments

key

A variable key in the wide format

sep

Default separator is the pipe, "\|" for most variables, while ordered accepts pipe or less than, "\|<". If the key did not follow those customs, other sep values may be specified for each variable class.

Value

A long format variable key

mydf.key <- keyTemplate(mydf)
mydf.keywide2long <- wide2long(mydf.key)

## rownames not meaningful in long key, so remove in both versions
row.names(mydf.keywide2long) <- NULL
row.names(mydf.keylong) <- NULL
all.equal(mydf.keylong, mydf.keywide2long)
