# Extract.linnet: Extract Subset of Linear Network In spatstat.linnet: Linear Networks Functionality of the 'spatstat' Family

## Description

Extract a subset of a linear network.

## Usage

 ```1 2``` ``` ## S3 method for class 'linnet' x[i, ..., snip=TRUE] ```

## Arguments

 `x` A linear network (object of class `"linnet"`). `i` Spatial window defining the subregion. An object of class `"owin"`. `snip` Logical. If `TRUE` (the default), segments of `x` which cross the boundary of `i` will be cut by the boundary. If `FALSE`, these segments will be deleted. `...` Ignored.

## Details

This function computes the intersection between the linear network `x` and the domain specified by `i`.

This function is a method for the subset operator `"["` for linear networks (objects of class `"linnet"`). It is provided mainly for completeness.

The index `i` should be a window.

The argument `snip` specifies what to do with segments of `x` which cross the boundary of `i`. If `snip=FALSE`, such segments are simply deleted. If `snip=TRUE` (the default), such segments are cut into pieces by the boundary of `i`, and those pieces which lie inside the window `i` are included in the resulting network.

## Value

Another linear network (object of class `"linnet"`).
