headTail(x, top=4,bottom=4,from=1,to=NULL, digits=2, hlength = 4, tlength =4, 
ellipsis=TRUE) 
headtail(x,hlength=4,tlength=4,digits=2,ellipsis=TRUE,from=1,to=NULL)
topBottom(x, top=4,bottom=4,from=1,to=NULL, digits=2, hlength = 4, tlength = 4) 
quickView(x,top=8,bottom=8,from=1,to=NULL)

Arguments

x

A matrix or data frame or free text

top

The number of lines at the beginning to show

bottom

The number of lines at the end to show

digits

Round off the data to digits

ellipsis

Separate the head and tail with dots (ellipsis)

from

The first column to show (defaults to 1)

to

The last column to show (defaults to the number of columns

hlength

The number of lines at the beginning to show (an alias for top)

tlength

The number of lines at the end to show (an alias for bottom)

Value

The first top and last bottom lines of a matrix or data frame with an ellipsis in between. If the input is neither a matrix nor data frame, the output will be the first top and last bottom lines.

For each line, just columns starting at from and going to to will be displayed. Bt default, from = 1 and to = the last column.

topBottom is just a call to headTail with ellipsis = FALSE and returning a matrix output.

quickView is a call to View which opens a viewing window which is scrollable (if needed because the number of lines listed is more than a screen's worth). View (and therefore quickView) is slower than headTail or topBottom.

#not shown
#quickView(ability,hlength=10,tlength=10)  #this loads a spreadsheet like table
