Coerce an rv object

Description

as.vector.rv coerces a given rv object into a vector; matrices lose their dimension attributes, but rv objects stay as rv objects (since they are considered to be “vectors”).

Usage

1
2
  ## S3 method for class 'rv'
as.vector(x, mode="any")

Arguments

x

an object

mode

(currently not used)

Details

as.vector.rv removes the dimension attribute and returns the rv object. Needed for compatibility with code that uses as.vector.
