Methods for Function rstream.clone in Package ‘rstream’

Share:

Description

Make a copy (clone) of an "rstream" object in package rstream.

"rstream" objects cannot simply be copied by <-. The new variable does not hold a copy of an "rstream" object but just points to the old object which might not be the wanted result (similar to R environments). To get a copy of the whole "rstream" object the clone method must be used.

Usage

1
2
## S4 method for signature 'rstream'
rstream.clone(stream)

Arguments

stream

an "rstream" object.

Methods

Methods available for all "rstream" subclasses: rstream.mrg32k3a, rstream.runif.

Note

The label (name) of the new copy has a dot "." appended to distinguish the original object from its copy.
