# Integer Vectors from lfactors

### Description

Returns integer representation of an lfactor that ignores the values used in the `levels`

argument
when the lfactor was created and instead returns an integer representation starting with 1.

### Usage

1 2 | ```
## S3 method for class 'lfactor'
as.integer(x, ...)
``` |

### Arguments

`x` |
same as |

`...` |
not used |

### Details

This method does not return integer results that are otherwise equal to the results from as.numeric
for compatability with `sparse.model.matrix`

.

, `as.numeric.lfactor`

### Examples

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 | ```
require(lfactors)
# create an example
let <- lfactor(4:12,
levels=4:12,
labels=letters[4:12])
as.numeric(let)
#same as as.numeric(4:12)
as.integer(let)
#same as 1:9
