Description

Transform between the spam sparse format to the matrix.csr format of SparseM and dgRMatrix format of Matrix

Usage

Arguments

x

sparse matrix of class spam, matrix.csr, dgRMatrix or dgCMatrix.

Details

We do not provide any S4 methods and because of the existing mechanism a standard S3 does not work.

The functions are based on require.

Notice that as.matrix.csr.spam should read as as."matrix.csr".spam.

Value

According to the call, a sparse matrix of class spam, matrix.csr, dgRMatrix or dgCMatrix.
